There's a niche for cozy little indie-pop bands that are meant to take the edge off our hardened punk backs and that's where bands like Sweden's Makthaverskan as well as the likes of Now, Now and Tancred pop to mind (albeit because just recently I had them all in my player). Well, if you haven't hea.
There's a niche for cozy little indie-pop bands that are meant to take the edge off our hardened punk backs and that's where bands like Sweden's Makthaverskan as well as the likes of Now, Now and Tancred pop to mind (albeit because just recently I had them all in my player). Well, if you haven't heard of Baby Ghosts before, push them right to the top of that list. Coincidentally, these bands aren't out there coining any phrases for their genre a la fans who look to things like "The Wave" or "The Emo-Revival" to classify their blood, sweat and tears. But, what these droopy, melody-scattered bands do is break down barriers between punk, indie and shoegaze, just to name a few, and add a (dare I say) cuteness to an indie scene draped with several bands balancing warm tempos and tones with neat post-punk montages. In an era where Dads and TWIBAP etc strike said balance, Baby Ghosts can now be heavily considered a poster-band for the lighter end of the spectrum. And that's where Maybe Ghosts comes in. It isn't just another wonderful addition to their catalog - it's actually an exclamation mark to how brilliant they punctuate this genre (or it's mash-ups).
