Garage rockers Holiday Ghosts announce brand new record ‘Absolute Reality’, set for release April 21st via FatCat Records (TRAAMS, Honeyblood, The Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks), and share rollicking lead track ‘Vulture’, out today (January 26th).
Arriving hot on the heels of acclaimed 2022 EP ‘Credit Note’, ‘Absolute Reality’ tackles different themes of social commentary, with fiery lyrics and hard-picked guitars, holding both honest confessions and tall tales, lived stories and movie-like landscapes. Bringing the noise and texture that Holiday Ghosts love from New York punk and the New Wave era, ‘Vulture’ cements their status within today’s alt-rock scene.
Speaking ahead of their single release, Holiday Ghosts revealed: “This song has had two lives. I remember playing it a lot five or six years ago on acoustic guitar as a kind of spaghetti western instrumental. It was half the speed and really atmospherically menacing. I’ve lost interest in musically pretending that I’m in a western movie now. When reimagining this track I’d been obsessively listening to the first The Cure compilation ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ and Young Marble Giants/Weekend. That style of production which has so much emphasis on space really got under my skin”.
Holiday Ghost’s ‘Vulture’ is out now via FatCat Records and will be available on all digital platforms.
