New York synth pop outfit Holy Ghost! has a new track out titled “It Gets Dark,” which is getting a vinyl single release on DFA Records. It’s the first piece of new, original music the band has dropped since its solid full-length debut last year, and I’m absolutely loving it.
The song is absolutely infectious with its “I hope it all falls apart mantra,” and the pulsating synth bassline is to die for. There are loads of atmospheric synth textures filling the air like a decked out smoke machine, and the great recording keeps these guys a cut above most groups shooting for the whole throwback synth pop aesthetic. Good on Holy Ghost! for cranking out another great single.
