GHXST NEW EP ‘DARK DAYS’ OUT NOW
Grunge-noise duo GHXST’s new EP ‘Dark Days’ is out now. 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”.
GHXST have carefully crafted this ominous record, 6 tracks of the most immersive musical explorations. This EP will wreak havoc with your senses as it embraces the dark elements and the crushing intensity that connects to your emotions and captivates you. The record oozes drama, intensity, and a raw addictive rhythm. The EP showcases the band’s talents to instantly capture their energy within the depths of their textures and it’s driving force. Poetically powerful and daring.
