ARTIST / BAND: Warm Ghost
ALBUM: Uncut Diamond
FILE UNDER: Experimental / Pop
INFO: A band and multi media duo based in Brooklyn, NY - Paul Duncan and Oliver Chapoy.
Paul Duncan is currently recording and performing under the moniker Warm Ghost. It finds him taking a step beyond traditional instrumentation and one toward that of electronics, synthesizers, drum machines and processed field recordings.
Warm Ghost has now evolved into a band in collaboration with Oliver Chapoy, where the sound is an intricately arranged shimmering sonic world of twisting words and melodies inside dense environments where there are elements of 80′s new wave, cold wave and synth pop from Solid Space to OMD to Depeche Mode, late 70′s disco, synth programming sharing ground with Autechre and AFX, and experimental textures reminiscent of Fennesz. The payoff is beautifully executed, lush pop songs that beg for repeat listening.
