Simian Ghost are set to play a London show at The Old Blue Last on the 10th February 2014. This should not be missed! There are a few remix’s and other stuff on the way so stay tuned but seriously don’t miss this gig!
Three-piece Siman Ghost released their debut album, Infinite Traffic Everywhere, in Sweden during the winter of 2010 to great enthusiasm and critical acclaim. It topped the critics chart in Sweden and was voted record of the year by the readers at Dagensskiva.se. In 2011 the band toured Sweden and shared stages with the likes of Mount Kimbie, SBTRKT and Niki and the Dove to name but a few.
Most importantly, 2011 saw their first release with UK label and tastemakers Heist Or Hit, who oversaw their Lovelorn EP, which hit our shores in November. Lead track Free Agent saw wide acclaim not only in the UK and Europe but even in the US.
Whereas Lovelorn, a wonderfully understated but primarily electronic record, was in Sebastian’s words “a collection of songs all conceived in my messy living room, very DIY”, the follow up Youth was very much more of a full band affair. Reflecting their live presence, the guitars came back and the result is a stylish coming together of all the debut’s promise with added sophistication and maturity.
