The Black Ghosts Release Debut Album in July

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Simon Lord and Theo King make up The Black Ghosts. Both from respective bands (Simian and The Wiseguys), the two have joined to make an electro-synth sound that's at once dark with goth influences, yet at the same time, inspires dance-floor moves. In a way they're lyrically intelligent songs with a beat, so you can shake your groove thang without being embarrassed that the songs are about your moneymaker.

The two guys are currently touring and have apparently received positive reviews on their Australian shows and SXSW shows. I personally dig some of the remixes that others have done on their songs, which I've included below, and also The Black Ghosts remix of The Gossip song, "Listen Up." Look out for their album, coming out July 8th.
