pinkpaw

Holopaw’s brand new “The Lights from the Disco” video premiered via Out Magazine today. Holopaw frontman John Orth is a tremendously talented musician/artist who also happens to be gay. In light of the latter, Out is the perfect home for the new video.

In addition to making unparalleled Holopaw records, Orth has previously collaborated with Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock (Ugly Casanova), toured with Iron & Wine, opened F.L.A. Gallery in Gainesville, FL and much, much more. He’s a brilliant mind and a wonderful advocate for the gay community. Orth’s impeccable voice is backed by a troupe of incredibly creative, tasteful and seasoned musicians. Go see Holopaw live when you get the chance.
