Powertool Records unleashes the powerful new EP from Ghosts of Electricity.Hamilton’s Ghosts of Electricity have been humming under the radar for the past few months, but their buzz grows ever louder. The release of this, their third EP ‘Don’t Try’, reinforces the emergence of a band that has taken a measure of this nation’s disquiet and set it to music.
Who are the Ghosts of Electricity?
A sound that's more a movement. That familiar drunken lurch. Ah, it's got the bite, that anger, that frustration. A sound born in that total-booze wander home from the pub at Uni, alone again, to a cold flat and a wank. A sound crafted sitting in a car in South Auckland, a drop-out in a labouring job, a shitty service station pie for lunch. A sound honed sitting in front of ten thousand work computers, wasting time on the net before knock-off rolls round. Of weekends hung-over when the neighbour's lawnmower never turns off. Hear it in Tim Fowler's gritty frets and brutally romantic growl; Vince Langdon and his roll on the skins; Winston Shadbolt, heavy fucking metal, and fingers that dance on bass.
This is the sound of the real New Zealand, the poetry of a generation of wandering Kiwis, staggering home too, wondering what the hell happened. The Ghosts know. Ah, a group, their sound torsades de pointes, with staggering conviction, with drive. Unafraid to take a swing, unafraid to miss and fall back down on their ass, knowing that that really is this fucking country.
This is the sound of Ghosts of Electricity.
