Unsigned Spotlight: This Old Ghost

Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (10/29/11)
This Old Ghost is a band from New York with male vocals enriched by female harmonies. Think indie rock a la Death Cab for Cutie mixed with the folk sensibilities of Murder by Death with a little Manchester Orchestra thrown in for good measure. We have the song "This Lifeboat is for Gold, Not People" streaming on their AP.net profile to check out. If you like what you hear, you can download their EP, Island of Violent Lovers, for free here.

Sounds good, I wish that there was a little bit more variation in the tones of the singer's voice, though.

My initial thought was a combination of Good Old War and Bayside (the voice, at least).

I've been driving around listening to this all morning. Totally cool sound. Has a Manchester/Right Away Great Captain vibe (to me, at least).
