The Truth (of a kind): GHOST SUNS continue to be an electronic enigma wrapped in a dark ball of mysterious melodic wool. What we know is this that they consist of a French duo called Lola and Jeremy; they live in North London, they have only ever played one live show and they announced themselves with the terrifically pouty ‘We Are Not Good People’ and ‘Wait Out’ tracks during 2016.
Luckily, we’ve also managed to discover that GHOST SUNS make lovely fluid synthetic pop songs with deadpan verses and beamingly understated choruses and disco guitars and low-flying lo-fi synths and a frankly fruity commercial sheen. Much like new single ‘Cheers To Poison’, in fact, which is spunky old school electropop which gallops along like the sound of Mute in the early ‘80s.
Better still, ‘Cheers To Poison’ is a suitably surly paean to the perilous pleasures of drinking, smoking and, y’know, having a blast which builds to a giddily guilt-free crescendo. 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.
An EP release is due in the spring. Before then GHOST SUNS will launch ‘Cheers To Poison’ with their second ever show here:

"Shots of new-wave inspired bliss: the sort of tracks that would feel at home soundtracking a neon noir or stylish dystopian future flick." - www.hiddenherd.com
