The Release: ‘CARDS ON A BICYCLE’

The Format: DIGITAL SINGLE smarturl.it/ghostsuns_cardsoab

The Gig: LONDON THE SOCIAL // OCTOBER 25TH
(H&M Early Sessions w/ St Serf)

The Truth: GHOST SUNS are a French electropop duo called Lola and Jeremy who work out of a tiny studio in North London – Hornsey, to be precise. They announced themselves in 2017 with the terrifically pouty ‘We Are Not Good People’ EP, and their Transeuropean synth-slicked paeans make us think of the deathless heyday of ZTT Records.

‘Cards On A Bicycle’ is Ghost Suns’ excellently brand new digital single which sees them take their melancholically uplifting sound and layer it with a bold symphonic pop palaver. We’d probably call it ‘synth-phonic’ if we weren’t completely sober. Either way Lola’s yearning vocal embraces a nostalgic lyrical mood which fits the sweeping soundscapes to a sweet, sweet tee.

Or, as Ghost Suns say in their own words: “’Cards on a Bicycle’ is a voyage through space and time. The card is the sound of the passing of time. We play with it when we are kids, pretending our bikes are motorbikes - we want to be older, we can't wait to be adults. But then the card resonates through life, it goes on and on, never looking back…"

‘Cards On A Bicycle’ is the third track taken from their forthcoming second EP ‘Testify’, which Ghost Suns will be sunning themselves with later in the autumn. It parties on from the sweet sorrow of lead-off tracks ‘Nothing More’ and ‘Why Criminal?’ which appeared earlier in 2018 with the support of Steve Lamacq 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.

"Very accomplished...Straddling the margins between brightness and melancholy." - Charlie Ashcroft, Amazing Radio

"Shots of new-wave inspired bliss: the sort of tracks that would feel at home soundtracking a neon noir or stylish dystopian future flick." - www.hiddenherd.com
