"Ghost Beach are the Venn diagram of their influences—Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads, The Police, and Daft Punk—and then some, thanks to a shitload of synths, some nostalgic 80s sonics and even the occasional reggae groove. The sound is unmistakably their own.”

“…catchy, buoyant beats…”

“If you can get people dancing as early as noon. You're good. They did."

“…a radiant and catchy cut fit for a tropical island dance party.”

Brooklyn-based duo Ghost Beach released their debut full-length album, Blonde, yesterday. Having already performed alongside The 1975, ASTR, Betty Who & St. Lucia, they recently announced a Firefly Festival appearance and national tour dates supporting RAC & The Sounds. The duo will also play the official All Things Go + Indie Shuffle and headline the official Nettwerk Party at SXSW!
Consisting of Josh Ocean & Eric “Doc” Mendelsohn, Ghost Beach have set the Internet ablaze with upbeat anthems, a preference for ‘80s synth and consistent number ones on The Hype Machine. Perfecting their unique blend of retro & futuristic soaring synth pop, the band previously shared party-starting Blonde album cuts “On My Side,” “Every Time We Touch,” a funk-infused blazer, strapped with an infectious bassline & classic house beats, and “Without You,” which features a full-on reggae vibe complemented perfectly by the duo’s distinctive, cutting-edge contemporary touch. Fans can get a taste of the Blonde LP at Paste Magazine, where it’s currently streaming in full!
