The long-awaited first full-length album from darkness-embracing Winnipeg duo Ghost Twin is finally upon us! “Saturn Swallows the Sun” is the latest single from Plastic Heart, which will also feature its excellent predecessors “Chymical Wedding” and “Mystic Sabbath”, and is produced by none other than Maya Postepski aka Princess Century. And as one might hope given the addition of such talent, “Saturn” is yet another stellar gothy electronic pop gem in the band’s growing oeuvre. Ominous omens indeed! Can’t wait to hear the whole thing!
Plastic Heart is out this Friday. It’s available for pre-order digitally and on vinyl from Bandcamp, where you can also find their tour dates across Canada this month.
Winnipeg dark electronic pop duo Ghost Twin (whose members include a sometime Silent Shout contributor) have one last treat for us in 2016: an expanded version of their 2015 EP Here We Are In The Night, featuring a bunch of new remixes to sweeten the brew that was an excellent EP, and one that will help tide us over to the next Ghost Twin record. And we’re more than glad to premiere the video for one of the new remixes, on which Cairns (aka the band’s own Karen Asmundson) completely inverts the title track into an eerie lullabye. The video is a beautifully dark and mysterious production, featuring a pair of masked figures in a barely lit forest getting their lunar ritual on. Unsurprisingly it works great with the hypnotic track, a perfect showcase for Cairns’ wonderfully unsettling, but serene, production skills.
Looking forward to seeing what these two get up to in 2017! But for now, grab the expanded edition of Here We Are in the Night from Bandcamp.
Yes one of the members of Ghost Twin is a Silent Shout writer, but this new video (directed by Gwen Trutnau) is too simply good not to share. Incredible costumes, set design, and just a truly amazing sci-fi goth aesthetic. Also, coffinphones!
“Here We Are in the Night” is the title track from their excellent debut EP, available now from Bandcamp. And if you’re in Winnipeg, you can check them out at the Big Fun Festival on January 29.
