Who’s ready for some 80’s synthpop with a modern edge? Then allow me to introduce to you GHOST BEACH. This indie band (with no label backing) is a New York-based duo of Josh Ocean and Eric “Doc” Mendelsohn — quickly garnering internet buzz with their singles, First Time, Faded, and Miracle. Each song is jammed packed with soaring synths, guitars (reminiscent of Thin Lizzy), and just the right amount of 80’s influences, for good measure.
These two pop pioneers have also teamed up with Trails and Ways, an Oakland, California bossanova dreampop band — remixing each other’s singles “Miracle” and “Nunca” as a bi-coastal collaboration. To hear/download both tracks, hit the links below:
And as an added bonus, the guys have released their latest single entitled “Been There Before” now available for download via iTunes and Soundcloud. To check out the brand new song, click below:
