Cool Ghouls



by tom johnson

Hurtling forthright and headstrong in to their fast-approaching new album, which arrives in the embers of summer, via Melodic Records on August 19th, Cool Ghouls today share another sparkling guitar jam in the form of the part-nostalgia inducing, part-sugar rush high, Spectator.

Informed by “seeing someone you loved with someone else for the first time,” the track is, once again, framed by their delicious way with the guitar; the track brooding in to life thanks to a pungent lead vocal before exploding in to something far more sturdy for a final couple of minutes akin to disappearing down some heady, woozy musical rabbit-hole.

Leaving a notable impact, ‘Spectator’ is a gleaming appetite-whetter, the kind of track that should soundtrack every sentimental summer drive that’s still left in the season. The track is premiering below; check it out right now.

‘Animal Races’ is released 19th August 2016, via Melodic and Empty Cellar
