GHOST SIMPSON: Self-Titled EP Review – Sonic Abuse

Ghost Simpson is an exploratory EP that introduces the band that is its namesake perfectly. There are reference points here from the progressive synth experiments of acts like Banco De Gaia and System 7 to the ambient dub of The Orb (themselves explorers of the space originally occupied by the likes of Pink Floyd and Yes). […] It’s a dark, brooding, gothic atmosphere the duo conjure, the music rooted in the post-punk experimentation of the early eighties […] a woozy style that recalls a dark underground nightclub where the blues-loving patrons have all been doped with ketamine and left drooling for a night of psychedelic noise and half-observed flashes of distorted reality. […] In this age of endless derivation, GHOST SIMPSON have tapped into something truly different.” – Sonic Abuse
