Holy Ghost! - It Gets Dark

Holy Ghost! was one of the only artists that ended up on my “Favorites of 2011” list that I hadn’t actually posted here on Soundboard. I definitely regret not putting them up until now, but that’s how these things go.

Comparisons to LCD Soundsystem are as inevitable as they are unfair to this Brooklyn-based duo. While they share a tangential vibe of sorts and have also been produced by LCD Soundsystem frontman, James Murphy, they’re steadily carving out their own synth-disco-alternative-dance niche. Their eponymous 2011 release had a very consistent sound, but this also ended up being its main critique. They recently released this standalone track which was previously available on a very exclusive 12”, and it’s awesome to see them stepping out of their own shadow and pushing the boundaries of their sound. While this is only one song, if this type of short-term growth is what we should be expecting from Holy Ghost!, then I can’t wait to see what the album cycle brings.

Enjoy!
