Brighton quintet Early Ghost give a more than affectionate nod to ’60s psychedelic folk and Spaghetti Western soundtracks; consider the heavy bass picking and laid-back vintage vibe of new single “Now I Always Wonder If I Like It Here.” The intro reminds me of “And I Love Her” by the Beatles pleasantly combined with soft vocals akin to Grizzly Bear. Such warm sounds envelop slightly chiller sentiments: “What do you want? Everyone knows, everyone knows but you.” It’s a song of apathy with a youthful sense of hopelessness.
“Now I Always Wonder if I Like it Here” is out 7/13 via Art Is Hard as a digital download or limited edition gold cassette with golden artwork. Pre-order it here.
