Sultry synth-pop with just the right amount of sleaze in its crisp arpeggios and ice-cold vocals. Ghost Culture’s debut for Because is a dancefloor romance that’s never left the bedroom and an extremely confident debut connecting up snotty electroclash and lonely 1980s new wave reference points. Gatefold vinyl LP and CD.

8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 9th January 2015
Pennsylvanian native James Greenwood relocated to London and became the electronic music whizz Ghost Culture. His debut album has every beep and blip on it that I remember hearing in the 80s, from Steve “Silk” Hurley to New Order and even Queen! (Check out “Glass”, there are some deep synth sounds midway through that are reminiscent of Radio Ga-Ga). It is probably easiest, if we’re looking for quick comparisons , to match Ghost Culture to East India Youth - two young guys that have remolded the past into their view of the future. The best track is the beautiful closer, “Fog”. This is a classic bedroom record that sounds greater than the some of its parts. A must if you like your futuristic retro-electronica with a bit of class.
