Holy Ghost! : It Gets Dark

Holy Ghost! hints at the direction of their latest sonic direction with their track entitled “It Gets Dark”. They dig deeper into the dark New Order vibes that they touched upon on their self-titled album. There amazing ability to craft big hooks and choruses is still very evident on this track. Let us see where the duo goes from here.

Holy Ghost! : I Wanted To Tell Her

Holy Ghost! have teamed up with Green Label Sound once again, this time teaming up with fellow DFA buddies, Nancy Whang and Juan Maclean to cover a classic Ministry tune, “I Wanted To Tell Her”. It is quite an appropriate track that suits Holy Ghost!’s new wave disco vibe.

Holy Ghost! x CFCF

Today Holy Ghost! released their remix EP of their next single “Wait & See”. It is a collection of remixes that take this already dancefloor friendly track deeper into the House world with remixes by Richard X, Moby and Kris Menace. The CFCF remix does the opposite, taking the big hooks of “Wait & See” and submersing them into a beach friendly/Balearic Disco setting. #Poolvibes all around….

Holy Ghost! : Wait & See

Holy Ghost!’s debut LP is one of my favorite albums of the year. In the age of making indie-chic-disco-dance-rock-pop, Holy Ghost! shines with an album that is a genuine attempt in making synth music that respects the synth dance greats. The synth gods such as Depeche Mode, New Order and Giorgio Moroder all look down with approval at this album. Instead of exploiting the cheesy, fake plastic feeling of synthesizers and all that its culture embodies, Holy Ghost! proves that they are disco disciples that have studied every synth manual and vinyl they have ever laid their hands on.

Oh yea and they write some undeniably amazing melodies and hooks. Dance 😉

Holy Ghost! – Do It Again

I got excited when I saw the latest Holy Ghost! single is entitled “Do It Again” thinking that it could be a disco cover of the Steely Dan track by the same name. Since Michael McDonald is making a guest appearance on the album I thought they were going all out with the Yacht Rock. Instead “Do It Again” is new wave disco track that reminds me of Tom Tom Club and The Talking Heads with Holy Ghost’s usual nostalgic disco flair.

Monarchy x Holy Ghost!

Holy Ghost! returns to their remix roots with this reworking of Monarchy’s “Love Get Out Of My Way” with the help of Berlin based producer Dixon. This time with a funky harpsichord and fat synth bassline that would make any late 70s/early 80s discotheque groove hard. This is definitely the heaviest production to come from Holy Ghost due in part to the fantastic drum solo that occurs during the bridge courtesy of Jerry Fuchs, RIP. Be sure to check out their live version of the duo in band form coming to a city near you.
