"If you can get people dancing as early as noon. You're good. They did." – NPR ‘All Songs Considered’
" ...a fusion of retro 80's-inspired melodies mixed with innovative experimental sounds." – VIBE
"…contagious pop hooks and tropicool vibes…" – Dancing Astronaut
Brooklyn-based duo Ghost Beach will release their debut album Blonde, on March 4 via Nettwerk Records. Formed in 2012, duo Josh Ocean and Eric “Doc” Mendelsohn have perfected their unique blend of retro and futuristic soaring synth pop.
We recently shared party-starting album single, “Miracle”, when it was released alongside remixes by Le Youth, DallasK and Nathan C. “Every Time We Touch” is a dancefloor banger strapped with funky disco beats and gritty guitar, while “Without You” is an undeniable pop song with reggae undertones that commands listeners to move. Tropical grit-pop track “On My Side” opens with vintage synth sounds and grooves into a deliriously catchy chorus. The “On My Side” MP3premiered with Vibe, and is available to post & share below.
With their self-titled debut EP and follow-up EP Modern Tongues, Ghost Beach has set the Internet ablaze with consistent number ones on Hype Machine. With upbeat anthems and a preference for '80s synth, the band has played shows alongside artists including Robert DeLong, The 1975, ASTR, Betty Who and St. Lucia.
