Biography

ghostplay an experimental ambient electronic rock band based out of Sacramento,CA .

Described as
having a sound with "80s-era goth and new-wave touches—very
Joy-Division-meets-Bauhaus-meets-The Head on the Door-era Cure" (
Rachel Leibrock, Scramento News & Review)
Their songs feature a catchy playful lead guitar, a moving rhythm
guitar, dancy rhythmic drums, each textured with dark, ambient vocals.
"Each one [song] tends to follow an arc, rising and falling with varying
levels of intensity and feelings. Sections build off of each other,
like waves of an ocean" (Arron Carnes, Sacramento News & Review).

The band recently released their debut e.p. '33' in 2015.  During 2014, and in early 2015 they had been working with producer/engineer Monte Vallier of Ruminator Audio in San Francisco, CA.
