The Truth (of a kind): GHOST SUNS continue to be a musical mystery lurking in an enigmatic eggshell. What we know is this: they consist of a French girl / boy duo called Lola and Jeremy; they work out of a tiny studio in North London – Hornsey, to be precise; they announced themselves with the terrifically pouty ‘We Are Not Good People’ EP in the spring of last year; and their Transeuropean electropop paeans make us think of the coolly deadpan heyday of ZTT Records.
‘Why Criminal’ is Ghost Suns’ brand new digital single which sees them take their patented synth-slicked sound and augment it with a proud symphonic pop edge. We’d call it ‘syn-phonic’ if that wasn’t such a terrible, terrible phrase. The ‘Why Criminal’ single is accompanied by an animated video by Laura Trouche which juggles with the erotic jugular and reaches places most videos fear to touch.
Or, as Ghost Suns say in their own words: “Why Criminal? Why feel bad when it's from the deepest urges of any species on this globe? Why trying to cover and pervert something that drives us? Women, men, facing the same struggle: society versus instances of clarity. ‘Why Criminal’ is an ode to sex in all its forms. It's a scream for a certain youth, whose parents still think they know better just because they know nothing. Try it for tonight, it's alright...”
‘Why Criminal’ is the second track taken from their forthcoming second EP ‘Testify’, which Ghost Suns will be sunning themselves with later in the Summer. It parties on from the sweet sorrow of lead-off track ‘Nothing More’ which appeared earlier in 2018 and saw Ghost Suns ghost in to play the fierce panda 24th birthday party at The Social as well as (electro)popping off to Paris for their own headline gigs as and a support with Dutch dreamboats Kensington.
