The Truth (of a kind): GHOST SUNS are an electronic enigma wrapped in a dark ball of mysterious melodic wool. What we do know is this that they consist of a French duo called Lola and Jeremy; they live in North London, they have never played live and they announced themselves with the terrifically pouty ‘We Are Not Good People’ single release at the start of 2016.
Happily, what we’ve also managed to uncover is that GHOST SUNS make lovely fluid synthetic pop songs with deadpan verses and beamingly understated choruses and disco guitars and a frankly fruity commercial sheen. Much like new single ‘Wait Out’, in fact, which is snaking out on fierce panda on August 26th as the most fruitily modern of digital download releases.
The mystery continues with the video for ‘Wait Out’ which is high art on a plate, featuring a dancing character whose actual physical being is used as a screen for a series of naturalistic images. Alongside the usual smorgasbord of seascapes, skies at night, soaring birds and bobbing fish the video features a tranquil flash of pangolin, and you don’t see that every day.
And what does it all mean? “It’s like the internal conflict we all face between the reality of things, and the constant trivial matters to bare the emptiness,” say GHOST SUNS, as you may or may not expect from a boy / girl duo of continental provenance creating dazzlingly bright pop in a small, dark studio off the Holloway Road.
GHOST SUNS will be releasing a full EP on October 28th, ie just when the ghostly sons and daughters of the world will be celebrating Halloween. Ghoul’s out. Forever.
