ANNOUNCE NEW EP ‘DARK DAYS’

HEAR FIRST TRACK ‘P.U.R.R.’

GHXST have announced the release of ‘Dark Days’ EP, out on 16th November. ‘F.U.R.R.’, the first single to be taken from the EP, features the duo’s signature booming 808, film samples and heavily down-tuned guitars, as well as guest vocals by a doom-loving cat.

Dark sounds emitting from the hellish movement that P.U.R.R possesses’, the arrangement feels electric. The intensity is ramped and the energy is thrilling. Whilst the moody yet completely infectious vocals swoon over the sonic soundscape. Another devilish exploration from the most desirable act around.

The EP was written and recorded between New York and California and was mixed by long-time collaborator and UK producer James Aparicio (Nick Cave, Grinderman, Spiritualized). 

Sonically, it’s an exercise in restraint and volume. GHXST say: “We built the beats to sound like an 808 booming out of a Cadillac window in Bed Stuy,” the Brooklyn neigbourhood where they are normally based. Guitars range from intimate Mazzy Star acoustic tones to dreamy feedback. And through it all, hazy vocals from some nowhere highway. They add “We hope someone blows out a speaker playing this record”. 

The EP is named after James Baldwin’s book. “No one is free until everyone is free”.
