Glass I Ghost

b

It seems to be harder and harder now to find some actually decent listenable electro music because to be honest, most are starting to sound the same as each other! These guys provide something that stems off mixing the best parts of every electro group. They’ve got the deep heavy bass, quirky melodies and decent vocals that sounds different enough while untouched by synths. If you like the electro music of Boys Noize but the alternative vocal sounds of The Rapture– this here is nice fresh combination/variation of what possibly could be your favourites. Oh- And it’s totaly danceable.

How did you come up with the name?
Phil and I were throwing around names, looking for something with a little alliteration, something that would embody the essence of our music and evoke strong imagery. Glass I Ghost just stuck with us.

Tell me a little about yourselves?
I’m James and I’m 99 years old, or at least that’s what my MySpace says. Phil is about 11,300 days old. We’ve been haunting California for all our lives, currently in Sacramento.

What did you guys do before the group started?
We had other bands. Phil was particularly ambitions in that regard. He’s been in tons of cool bands. I was more shy than him and mostly made music that no one got to listen to. And then there were the solo projects and other asides.

How did you start out/ was it hard?
Phil and I had immediate musical chemistry. I don’t think either of us have had such good luck with that before. When we meet we were both feeling a little disillusioned with our past projects and bands and we were really looking to do something that was just for us. Something that, even if no one else liked it, we would still love playing it.

Any big plans for the near future?
Ya, we are almost finished recording our EP. Soon it will be up for sale. And at some point after that, we would like to put together a tour so, if there are any other bands, managers or event coordinators out there who are interested, message us.

–Random questions–
What song have you been listening to most in the past few weeks?
I just rediscovered the song “That’s All” by Genesis and of coarse, “Machine in the Ghost” by the Faint.

What one materialistic thing can you not live without?
Oh, that’s a good question! Got to be my computer. Maybe my Micro Korg… no. The computer. I live online.

What important lesson have you learnt from being in a group?
Unquestionably, compromise has been the most valuable lesson I‘ve learned. When you’re a kid and you’re looking for advise on making music or making art you get all these misleading messages from ‘successful’ artists saying, “Don’t ever compromise, be yourself.” That’s great, but if you want to do something bigger than yourself, you’ll need to recognize that you don’t know everything and inevitably you’ll want to compromise.

Do you have a secret name for your favorite inanimate object?
Yes. Wooly. I won’t tell you what it is. You’ll make fun of me.

Does being in a band help in picking up girls/boys?
Yes. And sometimes they can be aggressive and scary but it always makes me laugh.

Has anything crazy or embarrassing ever happened during a live gig?
Nothing crazy yet, just embarrassing. We played one show during a ‘Super Hero’ night at a club and we were the only ones dressed up. We felt really silly.

Now this here is a free download of their song Perfect Strangers– it’s laid out there too easy for you guys to click and take sooo come on now!
