Ginger and The Ghost will be gracing Brighton with two sublime shows at The Great Escape this May.
With their Australian release ‘Where Wolf,’ Ginger and the Ghost grabbed the attention of the tastemakers with their experimental pop, quickly becoming the darlings of the local music press.
Now with their first UK EP ‘Call Up The Whales’, released on Rabble Records, the duo return to fully establish themselves among the alternative pop scene with four tracks displaying their mettle.
Ginger and The Ghost are Missy and Daniel, both renowned visual artists within the Australian fashion industry.
The duo’s live set is as enticing visually as it is phonetically – a quality they also bring to their videos, emphasizing their love of the dramatic in their costume and set design to create an entire conceptual world around their music.
With strong folk undertones, it’s an ethereal pop offering that has both depth and whimsy. Utilizing the quirk of Missy’s unique voice with their natural tendency towards the avant garde, songs such as The Mark of Hearts have recently drawn praise globally from tastemakers such as Nylon Magazine.
A dark complexity and beguiling spookiness lends an air of mysticism to the tracks, which can be attributed to their recording in a converted water tank in the Australian outback.
With shows at last years SXSW, CMW & CMJ festivals, a whistle-stop tour of North America followed culminating in a sold out show in San Francisco.
The talented duo are quickly amassing a strong fanbase that saw their 2013 single One Type of Dark reach No. 1 on the Hype Chart.
Finally bringing their show to the UK, the pair will be performing at this year’s Great Escape Festival in Brighton in advance of their EP release.
