Listing Detail Tabs

Not to be confused with the witch house genre of electronic music (which sometimes goes under the ghost wave tag), the band Ghost Wave is a New Zealand power trio. It's inspired by '80s bands on the Flying Nun record label, as well as the '60s British Invasion and some '70s recordings by Lee “Scratch” Perry. Ghost Wave's 2012 eponymous EP opens with a reverberated electric guitar picking over scratchy vinyl fidelity before the rhythm section ignites and “Sounds” plays with an early-‘80s authenticity. “On a Breeze” shimmers with twangy surf-guitar tones that recall ‘60s bands like The Sunrays and The Ventures, as well as more contemporary hodad-rockers like Ty Segall, Allah-Las, and Wavves. The sunny “Gold” is a mellower tune with a Byrdsy jangle and three-part nasal-toned, vocal harmonies reminiscent of early Beachwood Sparks. “Sunsetter” cranks up the reverb on the guitars as the bass plays a little higher than usual on the fretboard over a driving beat that culminates in a sound that would work well opening for The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
