Rev Keith’s DJ Pick of the Week is “Hollywood Forever Cemetery” by Allison Ponthier! Allison Ponthier is an indie-folk artist whose breakthrough came just last year with her debut EP Faking My Own Death. Born in a small Dallas suburb, Ponthier traded the Bible Belt for the Big Apple and moved to New York City in 2017. The move wasn’t easy, but ultimately proved to be the gateway for her artistic breakthrough. Themes from Ponthier often involve queerness, leaving one’s hometown, and self-reflection of her own identity and place in this world.
“Hollywood Forever Cemetery” blends dark mystical vibes with catchy hooks to create a unique sound that’s sure to get stuck in your head immediately! If you’re a fan of the atmospheric sounds of Kacey Musgraves or Faye Webster’s cheeky lyrics, you’re sure to love Allison Ponthier. This track is off Ponthier’s latest release and sophomore EP, Shaking Hands With Elvis, out on Interscope Records.
