Manchester-based duo Gavin Miller and Thomas Ragsdale may already be known to you as the excellent worriedaboutsatan, but currently they’re focussing on their other project, Ghosting Season.
In fact, they’re focussing particularly hard at the moment, as their debut album under this name, ‘The Very Last Of The Saints’, is due to become the first release on Sasha’s Last Night On Earth label on 14 May. And even sooner than that, they’ll be holding a launch party for the record this very Thursday.
Ghosting Season’s first release was the ‘Far End Of The Graveyard’ EP last summer, showcasing a sound more ambient than worriedaboutsatan’s. There’s an interesting juxtaposition of light and dark to it – the music sounds like it’s thought long and hard about itself and decided that everything’s actually alright, but all that introspection means it’s not quite able to express that to you fully right now. Instead it transmits a heartbreaking wave of indescribable emotion straight through your body.
You can catch Ghosting Season live at Electrowerkz in London this Thursday, with an excellent supporting line-up of Raffertie and The Slow Revolt, plus a DJ set from Graphics, while new single ‘A Muffled Sound of Voices’, an edit of which you can hear below, is due for release on 23 Apr.
