Ghost Mice

Average Rating:

Hometown: Bloomington, IN (USA)


Following the demise of both Operation: Cliff Clavin and The Devil is Electric, Chris and Hannah decided to give up on electric instruments and turn to "folk side." Playing a mix of punk and folk, all without mics or amplification, they've built up an impressively loyal following, much like Chris's Plan–It–X Records.

They have released several splits and two full lengths, often times incorporating guests from various friends' bands including SpoonBoy and Matty Pop Chart.
