“Of all the new electro-pop groups emerging this year Knocking Ghost stand tallest, and this is thanks to holding on to their alternative edge while embracing pop wholeheartedly.” – The Sound of Confusion
Knocking Ghost is an electronic trio hailing from West London, comprised of Rob Taylor (Vox, Synths, Guitars), Neil Quinlan (Synths, Guitars) and Andy Hobson(Drums, Percussion). They release their new single ‘Soul Aspiration’ on December 2nd.
‘Soul Aspiration’ is a brooding and sleekly styled piece of intelligent synth-pop. Hazy multi-layered synths are accompanied by arresting electronic sounds and a distinctive vocal, all underpinned by dark deep beats.
Knocking Ghost started out as a remix collective, putting their spin on bands such asErasure and Bastille. They soon discovered they shared similar electronic music tastes and decided to write their own music, described by the band as a mix of“contemporary dance floor music with part late 70's early 80's pop, and many different pieces we picked up in-between; but always something with a big brooding soul and a silver lining.”
Forming just over a year ago, Knocking Ghost released their debut EP ‘Distractions’, which met with good early reviews. The band subsequently headlined London’s Hoxton Bar and Grill and appeared live at the Isle of Man Festival amongst other live performances.
