"music video premiere: ginger and the ghost"

Fact: We first heard of Ginger and the Ghost about a week ago.

Another Fact: We haven’t stopped listening to them since.

Based in Australia, the experimental indie pop duo plan to release their debut EP this coming January. Mixing a dose of Tegan and Sara weird with a dash of Florence and the Machine magic, Ginger and the Ghost is the kind of music we wouldn’t mind being on the soundtrack to our life.

Check out the premiere video of their first single “One Type Of Dark” above, and let us know if you’re into it! — ALI HOFFMAN - http://nylonmag.com


"GINGER & THE GHOST STRIKE WITH NEW SINGLE [PREMIERE]"

Earlier this year, I fell in love with Australia-based Ginger & The Ghost (@ginger_theghost), who exhibited a bold combination of visual and audible artistry with their single “Where Wolf”. As promised, I’m back with some news of upcoming releases! Tucked away in New South Wales, the duo have been intimately crafting an EP which is set for release in January of next year. “One Type of Dark”, the first single from the EP, is minimalistic and organic, featuring a steady, finger-picked rhythm later accompanied by subtle strings and thumping percussion — all of which serve as a backdrop for standout vibrato-tipped vocals.

You can stream “One Type of Dark” here now, and check back for a video in early December. Ginger & The Ghost also plan on attending SXSW 2013 and will be releasing their debut LP shortly after. - http://www.thewildhoneypie.com

“We have found you Bjork circa the future…This is the

strong medicine you’re looking for.”

- The Owl Magazine



“The film clip is simply stupendous, full of so much colour and imagination. It’s like a confetti bomb has gone off in our mind.”

- Frankie Magazine



Sydney-based experimental-pop duo Ginger And The Ghost are excited to premiere their eagerly anticipated new music video “One Type Of Dark” via NYLON Magazine. Check out the video here.



The innovative duo are uniquely weaving their way into the future of music by placing equal importance on visual and musical elements. They hand-make their own sets and installations for each show, using found objects, textiles and projections to create an atmosphere of fantasy, color, and movement, immersing the audience in their dreamstate world.



In Ginger’s own words: “One Type of Dark” is a story about my inner child’s imagination. As she leaves a subconscious dreamstate in bed, she floats out of the window and into thoughts of otherworldly places. Questions with infinite possibilities are asked while visions of herself play out fantastical adventures across far away galaxies. It’s a celebration of our imagination and the importance of keeping it.



On December 18th Ginger And The Ghost’s “One Type of Dark” and “Where Wolf” will be released as digital singles through InGrooves/Fontana and available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and all digital retailers worldwide.



“One Type of Dark” recently premiered on The Wild Honey Pie (here) and is the first official single from the band’s upcoming debut EP, out Spring 2013. The yet-to-be-titled EP will also feature remixes by prominent artists. The band previously released a teaser single and video called “Where Wolf”, available to embed and post here.



As musicians and visual artists, Ginger and the Ghost have transformed imagination into song. Hiding away in a converted cement water tank studio in the northern New South Wales hinterland, Ginger And The Ghost found the freedom to create. Driven by the idea of writing and recording in a spontaneous way, they utilised whatever tools were at hand to shape their sound. From bicycle wheels to body percussion, their music is driven by instinct, intuition, and an innate sense of trust in each other.

Whether it’s through seeing their videos, hearing their music, or experiencing their live show, Ginger And The Ghost draw you into their creations with their striking imagery and visual-music style. - http://www.hellhoundmusic.com


"Ginger And The Ghost Confirmed For SXSW & CMA"

Sydney based experimental pop duo, Ginger and The Ghost, are proud to announce they will be taking the stage at this year’s South By South West Festival, as well as at Canadian Music Week. We’ve only just started the new year, but the Aussie band have managed to receive ‘Video of the Day’ on AOL’s Spinner for their highly celebrated video, ‘One Type of Dark.’

"Ginger and the Ghost, 'One Type of Dark' -- Video of the Day"

Artist: Ginger and the Ghost
Video: One Type of Dark
Highlight: "The film clip is based on an idea of moving into your subconscious," Ginger and the Ghost tells Spinner. "Moving from one scene through the curtains into another made the transition seem dreamlike. The mood, colors and time of day were an expression of the calm state of dreaming. The projections had visuals that reflect the ‘One Type of Dark’ song. Clouds, galaxies, and falling glittery rain were projected on spaces and objects like the window pane and curtains which we thought created a cool transition from reality into imagination. The song is about a childlike vision, so we simplified that and made it into another adventure." - http://www.spinner.com


"THINKING ABOUT… GINGER & THE GHOST"

I had such good intentions… And now we’re into February, and how many times have I posted? Ok, once. Rubbish. In my defence I plead first snow (who can work when it snows?!) and second, Sri Lanka. It’s a lot harder to do this, both physically and mentally, from a job on an island in Asia.

And, I hate to tell you this, but I’ll be going off again in a few mere weeks… I have just a little trip to make to Australia. Sorry. But you’ll live.

The upshot of this is that, despite the fact it’s still stupidly cold in London, my head is off in the sun. I’m very ready for summer now and completely infected with the wanderlust bug. I’ve spent the last few months looking out for wistful, wintery music and guitar-lead tracks to give me the energy to get through the dark months. But now… I’m making playlists of dreamy, sun drenched songs to fit with a Beatles-in-India mindset. Also (thanks to the cool-down in a recent exercise class) I’m digging out my neglected acoustic artists like Xavier Rudd and a bit of John Butler Trio in an effort to hurry on the sunshine!

I also have an amazing psych band hidden up my sleeve, but you know what? I want to use it on a job… so until that’s done I’m keeping it to myself in an act of selfishness which I’m choosing to think of as luxurious anticipation! In the mean time, this is something I have found on my travels to bridge the seasonal gap… Ginger & The Ghost… - http://thatswhatwethought.wordpress.com


"Ep 1 of ComicPop MiniCast: Ginger and the Ghost"

Hello everyone and welcome to a ComicPop MiniCast. This recording was during Episode 30, but we had to drop it from the show due to time restraints. Therefore, we are putting it up as a MiniCast.

In this MiniCast the ComicPop Crew received an e-mail from Caitlin Pasko, of the MuseBox. The MuseBox has been keeping our blog appraised of indy music artists and the product they are producing. Caitlin asked the Crew what we thought of a particular artist they represent, Ginger and the Ghost.

The ComicPop Crew gives our feedback on Ginger and the Ghost’s “One Type of Dark”. The intro and outro for the MiniCast features another of Ginger and the Ghost’s songs “Where Wolf”. - http://comicpoplibrary.com


"Ginger And The Ghost"

Ginger and The Ghost are quite captivating and if you haven’t heard them yet take a few moments to check them out. The band features Ginger on the vocals, autoharp and percussion and The Ghost takes care of the bass, keys, drums and percussion. The group’s music has tribal elements running through it however it also has a great pop sensibility that makes it extremely palatable for a broad audience. When it comes to the bands stage and music video production they are DIY and their visual creativity is presented beautifully in costumes and settings. The clip for Ginger and The Ghost’s first release Where Wolf was one of our favourite clips from 2012, we just love it!


The video (featured below) shows a mysterious frolic through a neon garnished woodland and as the music builds each scene entices and draws the viewer in. For a first video clip I’m sure you’ll agree it’s exceptional and it shows that right from the get go that each move the band make is executed impeccably!

L.B.M were fortunate to see the band showcase their sound to an intimate crowd of about 30 people in a small Melbourne theatre just out of the CBD and we walked away awestruck. Silver tinsel hung from dispersed branches on the stage, draped curtains create a cave like setting and throughout the show gorgeous visuals were projected in the background. The duo were so connected during the gig and although they noted they had only played a few live shows, they performed like seasoned musicians.

Ginger and The Ghost are in the midst of crafting an EP that’s set for release this year and the first single lifted from the EP is called One Type Of Dark which is another example of the groups dreamy world and you can watch the video and hear the song on the player below.

"Ginger And The Ghost"

When two self-professed ‘visual artists’ turn their hand to music and production, you generally call ‘SLASHY’ and promptly ignore them until they appear on the cover of Oyster mag several months later. At which point you pretend you were into it from the start. At least that’s what I do.

But me ol’ chum Dan sent me this new artist from NSW called Ginger And The Ghost and I gave it a go – their debut jam ‘Where Wolf’ a lilting forest-jam channeling the “girl vs girl in outdoor acid therapy session” attitude of Kyu. - http://www.littleboommusic.com

"Introducing: Ginger and the Ghost"

Experimental pop act Ginger and the Ghost take the commercial quirk aspect of CocoRosie and match it with the girly charms of Alex Kingston at her pop purest, like stuffing a piñata with lemon sherbet and throwing it in a pool of red wine.

Based in Syndey and already the darlings of Aus-side publications The Owl Mag and Frankie, ‘Ginger’ and ‘Ghost’ have made a name for themselves as catchy popstrels ready to launch across the sea in 2013 – but beneath their glossy exterior you’ll find musicians worthy of their own salt and spice. Take debut single “Where Wolf” and its accompanying video teaser for example. Not only do they have impeccable taste in monsters, but they’re more than a little handy at smacking trees and guerilla knitting.

In Ginger’s own words:
“The song is a story about my inner child’s imagination. As she leaves a subconscious dreamstate in bed, she floats out of the window and into thoughts of otherworldly places. Questions with infinite possibilities are asked while visions of herself play out fantastical adventures across far away galaxies. It’s a celebration of our imagination and the importance of keeping it.“
Their debut EP is due out in the spring of 2013. - http://www.drunkenwerewolf.com

Bio

Ginger And The Ghost arrived with their debut single WHERE WOLF and global tastemakers embraced their alternative pop artistry.

Hiding away in a converted cement water tank in the Australian bush, the duo were able to find the freedom to create.

Driven by the idea of writing and recording in a spontaneous way, they utilised whatever tools at hand to deliver their sounds. From bicycle wheels to body percussion, their music is driven by instinct & intuition.

With early support from Triple J in Australia, their following single ONE TYPE OF DARK drew the praises of Nylon Mag and garnered an entry to SXSW & CMW in 2013.

Victory and defeat.... The darkness and the light.

This is Ginger & The Ghost.
