SXSW, National Tour With RAC & The Sounds + Firefly Festival

"Ghost Beach are the Venn diagram of their influences—Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads, The Police, and Daft Punk—and then some, thanks to a shitload of synths, some nostalgic 80s sonics and even the occasional reggae groove. The sound is unmistakably their own.” 
– VICE’s Noisey
“…catchy, buoyant beats…” 
– Paste Magazine
“If you can get people dancing as early as noon. You're good. They did." 
 NPR’s All Songs Considered
“…a radiant and catchy cut fit for a tropical island dance party.”

Brooklyn-based duo Ghost Beach today release their debut full-length album, Blonde, via Nettwerk Records. Having already performed alongside The 1975, ASTRBetty Who & St. Lucia, they recently announced a Firefly Festival appearance and national tour dates supporting RAC & The Sounds. The duo will also play the officialAll Things Go + Indie Shuffle and headline the official Nettwerk Party at SXSW!
Consisting of Josh Ocean & Eric “Doc” Mendelsohn, Ghost Beach have set the Internet ablaze with upbeat anthems, a preference for ‘80s synth and consistent number ones on The Hype Machine. Perfecting their unique blend of retro & futuristic soaring synth pop, the band previously shared party-starting Blonde album cuts “On My Side,” “Every Time We Touch,” a funk-infused blazer, strapped with an infectious bassline & classic house beats, and “Without You,” which features a full-on reggae vibe complemented perfectly by the duo’s distinctive, cutting-edge contemporary touch. Fans can get a taste of the Blonde LP at Paste Magazine, where it’s currently streaming in full!
