Holiday Ghosts, a prolific four-piece of musicians and friends, bring their hip-shaking, head-thrashing, raw and upbeat energy to their recordings and unforgettable live shows. The result is unadulterated and unclean, unabashed and uncompromised. As drummer, Katja Rackin, and guitarist Sam Stacpoole, share lead vocal duties, their voices come together as one with dispersed harmonies, often joined by rhythm guitarist Ben Nightingale, and grounded by Morgan Lloyd-Mathews' tastefully simplistic bass grooves. Call it garagey, jangly, rock n rolly, indie, punky, poppy, whatever you wanty.
Since the birth of the band, they have played iconic stages throughout the UK and Europe, from Latitude Festival to Left Of The Dial, from Dot to Dot to Misty Fields from the Pyrenees mountains to the chapels of Chester. They’ve attracted widespread praise across the press community (KEXP, Brooklyn Vegan, The Guardian, The Independent, Stereogum, Clash, Gigwise & more), and have been spotlighted by BBC 6 Music via live interviews and the Album of the Day feature.
With catchy melodies, fiery lyrics, hard-picked guitars and a DIY punk spirit, Holiday Ghosts have cemented their status in the UK music scene and have big plans for the year ahead.
