Music

Press


It's music that shows what good rock & roll can do. The songs are heavy with guitars, the tunes catchy and driving, the lyrics clever and springing naturally from Camilla's strange tale, the genres shifting from punk to funk to power ballad to turbo-pop, and they all sizzle.

Best of all, Alonzo has the voice of a whisky-stained angel. Here he's crooning, he's roaring, he's whispering and he's shrieking, he's unleashing a remarkable range. And you hear it, and realize that he's written all the material, and note the rough charm and confidence with which he works the too-little stage, and it might occur to you: Plant a seed like this, give it enough water and light and food, in a decade or so you'll have a tree like Freddie Mercury.

Bio

Ghost Runner plays epic rock songs about Greek myths and dinosaurs and oceans and planets and stars and radio waves.

Based in Brooklyn, the three Texas natives play an aggressive, intelligent style of punk-influenced rock that's at turns ugly then graceful, whispering then overpowering.

Pulling influences from such like-minded virtuosic acts as Television, Built to Spill, Queens of the Stone Age, Mark Lanegan and Radiohead, Ghost Runner specializes in long, intense sets of hypnotic rock.

They drink too much, but who doesn't?
