Revenge Wife is the solo project of HOLYCHILD lead singer, Liz Nistico. Those who have witnessed her life as an artist can attest that she’s no stranger to evolution.
In her time with indie sensation HOLYCHILD, Nistico expounded feminism in pop culture, releasing highly personal songs. She was also able to further her skill set as an artist– directing all of the music videos, getting a record deal with Glassnote Records, touring the world, and playing multiple festivals (Lollapalooza, Governor’s Ball, ACL, FujiRock).
Her experience is why Revenge Wife feels so refined. With both Revenge Wife and HOLYCCHILD she piques everyone’s curiosity in the way she expresses extreme vulnerability within her lyrics, depicting heartbreak and past trauma, both in her personal life and in her time in the music industry, and combines them with an effervescent synth-pop sound.
Accolades aside, she stands as a female artist who continues to grow in the public eye. Her sound is evolving and she’s moving into new territories as a songwriter, a director, a performer, a singer, and a person. She's currently writing a feature-length horror film.
