PRESS

  • "I absolutely love this!"
  • "A transatlantic collision of vintage valve amps and futurist electronics. The tension between the opposing forces of glamour and grit is central to the United Ghosts sound."
  • "The excitement hits with the first notes, this electro-shoegaze dou are like a revved up Raveonettes Primal Scream mashup, flying high."
  • "Electronic-laced indie with ambient and shoegaze elements. Be watching for them."
  • "Out of Love is a ceaseless anthem of shoegazey pop, the song doesn't really let up, and that's a good thing. Every song on the EP is an anthemic wall of sound where the dynamics rarely shift out of the higher gears. Artist of the Month."

BIO

  • Los Angeles band United Ghosts blends a seemingly dizzying collection of influences that range from Dream Pop and Electronica to classic Psychedelia and Krautrock into a cohesive, hypnotic sound that celebrates its influences, while keeping one eye firmly set towards the future.
  • Initially conceived as a loose garage-studio project by founding members and co-vocalists Sha Sabi and Axel Ray Steuerwald, United Ghosts have released two 7" singles plus 2013's self-titled debut album to much public and critical acclaim, picking up extensive radio play by such Indie-rock mavens as Steve Lamacq (BBC6), Nic Harcourt (KCSN), Jamie Kennedy (XFM London) and many others. The record fared especially well in the UK, where it was picked up by Cargo records for distribution and has made U.G. many devoted fans of both their recorded output and visceral live shows.

    After two successful UK/European tours, a slew of US shows (including CMJ New York) and a buzzing LA residency in 2013, UG went back into the studio to work on new music. Mostly self-producing, the band had help at the mixing stages from Producer/Engineer Drew Fisher (Le Sera, Cold Showers, Darker My Love). The result was the 2014 5-track EP entitled "Dear Electric Sun", which marked a shift in sound towards the more synth based and electronic, while keeping the dreamy warmth of the twin vocals and widescreen guitars that has become a signature of the band.

    A series of radical "Dear Electric Sun" remixes is to follow, before United Ghosts hit the road this summer in support of a new single and album, slated for a late 2015 release.
