detah to the ghostsDeath To The Ghosts (or The Ghosts as they were previously known) have the record for the fastest review ever on Cool Noise. I got their Trichroma EP on a Saturday morning and had posted a review within an hour raving about the first track Hoodoo Voodoo. The same thing almost happened with EP but I held myself back. The reason for the enthusiasm was the opening track Army Of Mice that surges along with energetic guitar and distorted vocals with a good few screams and shouts. Right up my street.

Army Of Mice by Death To The Ghosts

By holding back on the review I listened to all the tracks enough times to get a better idea of what Death To The Ghosts are really capable of. They are not just a band in the Solar Race tradition but with a deep Pop pedigree as well. Electro Boy is a sensously sung and played song of dumping someone. The final track Somni Saves is perhaps the most interesting track on the EP. Recalling The Mo-dettes with its tuneful delivery although with a much harder edge. Full of dynamic rhythms and saturated with sex and agnosticism. Death To The Ghosts are a band with real potential.
