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: they consist of a French duo called Lola and Jeremy; they work out of a studio in North London – Hornsey, to be precise; they have only ever played three live shows; and they announced themselves with the terrifically pouty ‘We Are Not Good People’ and ‘Wait Out’ tracks during 2016, both of which feature on this here ‘We Are Not Good People’ EP.
Happily, the ‘We Are Not Good People’ EP launches the fierce panda 2017 EP Club, which succeeds the panda Singles Clubs of 2015 and 2016 and sees six fresh-faced new acts peddle extended play releases on fierce panda records over the next 12 months with the cuddly support of Arts Council England.
Even more happily, we can also reveal 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 current 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 giddy 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 a turn or two away from Turnpike Lane…
