Holy Matter is the pseudonym of Leanna Kaiser, musician, experimental filmmaker, and music video creator living in Los Angeles, CA.
Eve’s Hollywood is her debut single - see the video below - featuring contributions from members of Big Search, Sonny & the Sunsets, Frances With Wolves, and more.
The song recalls Broadcast and The Association, as well as labelmates Sugar Candy Mountain and contemporaries like Kate Bollinger and Alice Phoebe Lou.
Leanna Kaiser on Eve's Hollywood:
"I wrote this song during a mushroom trip one summer while I was reading a lot of Eve Babitz, listening obsessively to 'Along Comes Mary' by the Association and thinking pessimistically about life in Los Angeles and its people, while also being conscious of the fact that I was, in fact, one of those people."
Eve's Hollywood lyrics © Leanna Kaiser:
The vampires and their women
Growing their gardens
They live and they die in LA
Singing and they're swimming
In dirty white linen
The seasons are strangers
The clouds barely sigh in LA
Born beautiful, yesterday
Flowers bloom brighter in the haze
