Released: 6 June 2010
Tipped by NME as ‘Ones To Watch’, Sunday Best signings The Ghostexplode on to the UK music scene with the release of their debut single ‘City Lights’ on June 6, 2010.
The single is taken from their energetic and highly anticipated album ‘War Kids’released shortly after on June 21, 2010.
The Ghost, Filip Mortensen on vocals and Urbanus Olsen on electronics, play a compelling mix of vintage electro pop and indie rock, showcased brilliantly by ‘City Lights’, which also contains strong contemporary pop sensibilities: a perfect combination that results in this catchy anthemic summer debut.
The band come from the Faroe Islands and first came to Rob da Bank’s attention at The Iceland Airwaves Festival where their live performance, on-stage charisma and energy blew him away. They also caught the attention of theNME who returned to the UK proclaiming the band as ‘Ones to Watch’. The band have since gone on to support Ladytron and The Wombats on tour.
The remix package propels the track firmly onto the dancefloor with re-takes byDavid E. Sugar, The Deadstock 33s, Repeat Offenders and The Kenneth Bager Experience.
