Debuting music from their forthcoming Impulse! records release (March 2019) The Comet is Coming is the soundtrack to an imagined apocalypse.
In the aftermath of widespread sonic destruction what sounds remain? Who will lead the survivors to new sound worlds? Who will chart the new frontier? In a warehouse somewhere in London 2013 a meeting would take place between three musical cosmonauts. They would pool their energies to build a vessel powerful enough to transport any party into outer space.
It is after the end of the world, the stage is a spacecraft, the mic is an accelerator, brace yourself for The Comet is Coming
King Shabaka – saxophone
Danalogue – keyboards
Betamax Ohm – drums
“Powered by Arkestral cosmic forces, The Comet Is Coming. Brace for impact” – The Guardian
“The Comet Is Coming embraces stargazing psychedelia on its maiden voyage, outfitting spacey synth arrangements with taut saxophone riffs that spiral off into the inky abyss” – Time Out, New York
With spectral grooves, caressing textures and luminescent melodic hooks, Ghost & the City emerges from Oakland’s vibrant underground music scene. The ensemble melds the alluring vocals of soulstress Kia Fay, the lyrically charged keyboard/synth work of Ash Maynor, the elastic beats of drummer Will Jenkins and the trumpet stylings of Ross Eustis into a sensuous trip-hop jazz sound. Rapidly gaining notice as a signature West Coast musical force, Ghost & the City continues to hone a sound that embraces a multiplicity of styles while melting away from superficial labels. 2019 will see the release of a handful of new originals and remixes from their recent TIME EP with a wide array of global collaborations.
