NEW SINGLE OUT NOW ON ALL STREAMING PLATFORMS
Cape Town alt/cult-pop duo Lo-ghost (Shannon Devy and Evan Strauss) started their journey mid-2016 with a stunning debut video release for “Ghost in a Blood Machine”, the lead single off their first EP “Mother”. A manifestation of the interplay between love and shame, the video was performed and choreographed by Chester Martinez (FKA Twigs, “Honey 2”) and Devon Marshbank. The work was picked up and featured by media outlets across the continent.
Since "Mother", Lo-ghost have released a full-length album, a podcast series, multiple singles, a limited-edition vinyl release and multiple live performance videos. Their work is characterised by a fearless, emotive handling of difficult aspects of human condition, from the queer experience to grief and loneliness. Their ability to connect quickly and indelibly with an audience has earned them an energetic and devoted cult following in their hometown and beyond, with their music accruing over half a million streams world-wide in 2018 alone.
Lo-ghost’s second album, ‘CULT POP’ will be available on all streaming platforms on 15 November 2019. The album will be released through local label, KuduKudu.
After the lush, dark alt-pop of 2016’s ‘There’s Blood In My Body and It Sounds Like This:’, ‘CULT POP’ sees Lo-ghost settled into a singular sound that is uniquely their own – a restless, genre-agnostic, groove-heavy sonic language from which the album draws its name. Gritty and defiant, ‘CULT POP’ is a sleepless expression of an upside-down life, all 3am and neon-flicker: one long, aching night of euphoria, heartache, fury and fear.
