Ghosts of Social Networks – Outside The Wheel

From impressing with their debut AA-sided single Love Potion/ Mockingbirds last year, UK band Ghosts of Social Networks has gone from strength to strength in writing, sound, and attention. Earlier this year, No Going Back left its predecessor and the band’s second single Comeback Kid in the shade, a feat replicated now by Outside The Wheel, easily the outfit’s finest moment to date.

Created by and based around the craft and music of Manchester based Nathan Till, Ghosts of Social Networks create musical and emotional drama within their songs and no more striking than the suggestive theatre shaping Outside the Wheel. Again a song produced by Gavin Monaghan (Editors, Robert Plant, The Sherlocks), the new single winds a spicy groove around ears first, it’s tempting persona soon backed by tenaciously prowling rhythms the warm and expressive vocals of Till. At the same time, a haunting air rises and flows across the song, bringing a sense of The Mission to the brooding, politically charged encounter.

Building crescendos which erupt into a fiery chorus soaked in its own espionage of drama and creatively flirtatious escapades, moments with a touch of Bond to them; the song simply ignites ears and imagination not forgetting real pleasure.

There are some songs which leave a lingering mark on thoughts and emotions; Outside The Wheel one of them leaving Till and Ghosts of Social Networks a real task to match its majesty next time around.

Outside The Wheel is available now through Integrity Records.

Ghosts Of Social Networks – Love Potion

art gosn_RingMasterReview

A dark seduction for the senses and a provocative adventure for the imagination, Love Potion is the debut single from UK band Ghosts Of Social Networks. It is not always easy to spark real attention with your first offering on unsuspecting ears, but the Manchester outfit certainly have no trouble with their magnetic fusion of post punk, indie rock, and neo-psychedelia.

Produced by Gavin Monaghan (Editors, Scott Matthews, Robert Plant, Paolo Nutini), the song is a dark tale of unrequited love and the use of alcohol as a way of getting close to someone. Embraced by a potent emotive exploration; its provocative narrative is more than match by thick waves of sultry and haunting sound which wash imposingly yet engagingly over the senses. With bold textures and lingering sonic caresses, the track openly bears the band’s inspirations from the likes of The National through to The Jesus & Mary Chain, with Echo & The Bunnymen the overriding scent especially when melodies and harmonies entangle and fuzzily smoulder in a fiery seduction. Despite those colours, the song reveals a distinct character belonging to the band, one which greedily enthrals as it sublimely slips into the psyche.

Love Potion is one half of an AA sided offering; its companion Mockingbirds, a similarly dark and provocative proposal looking at those imitating celebrity culture rather than carving out their own identity. The first side of the single is our first glimpse at Ghosts Of Social Networks though, providing a mystique soaked romancing of ears and imagination within a tempest of emotion and instinctive adventure from a band already suggesting they are going places.

Love Potion/Mockingbirds will be released digitally through all major sites May 6th on Integrity Records (INT 054).
