With a raucous marching beat and a relentless rhythm and melody, Ghost Station create an #indie anthem with their new single ‘Cast Away’. This is a band that loves what they do, and it shows. The single and video represent that certain poptastic singalong sensation one feels when they don’t want summer to end. Now that the moment is captured, retain that feeling until next year. Bravo!
About Ghost Station & ‘Cast Away’
Essex’s self-styled ‘smallest band in the world’ Ghost Station have released their new single ‘Cast Away’ on all download/streaming platforms. An infectious 3 minutes of beachy guitar pop, the new track showcases a knack for marrying sun-kissed harmonies to crunchy guitar sounds.
“The title was taken from the Tom Hanks film which had been on TV the night before I wrote the song, so desert island living was kind of resonating at the time,” explains Ghost Station main man and songwriter Matt Phillips. “It’s a reaction to the things that make up our daily routines – stuck on commuting trains, remembering passwords and boring bosses. I should point out that I’d be a useless companion on a desert island, as I don’t even like getting sand in my shoes on holiday!”.
Led by Phillips sublime songwriting skills (honed over almost two decades in music), Ghost Station could easily be described as a British Weezer or a 21st-century update of The La’s sunny indie-pop. Cast Away follows press acclaim for their previous singles Head For The Sun and Tear It Up, with The Sun hailing their “catchy melodies and jangly guitars” and interview coverage from Gig Slutz and Music Muso.
