The Mouth Of Ghosts
The Mouth of Ghosts set to release EP ‘You Will Go Again From Me’ on March 16 2014
“When the Sun Sets is effortless, ethereal, and gorgeous. Soaring, sensuous vocals set in a shimmering widescreen production underpinned by an irresistible groove and the best bass-playing I’ve heard all year. Deservedly picked as a Fresh Fave by readers on our blog recently.”
Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music

Having met in early 2011, founding band members Simon Langford and Marco Italia met Alla Seydalieva, matching her stunning vocals with haunting, ragged guitar melodies and moody bass. Drummer Phil Page joined the trio in late 2011 and in March 2012, Valerie Deniz (vocals, synth) made the band a five.
Emotionally-driven alt-rock with trip-hop stylings is the London-based quintet’s weapon of choice and ‘You Will Go Again From Me’ sees the band take it a step further, weaving soulful and trippy textures that flatter Alla’s spectral high-ranging vocals.
Simon Langford (guitar) says “The EP was recorded in 2013, but due to a variety of inconceivable events wasn’t released until this year. Later in 2014 we plan to record a full length album.”
‘You Will Go From Me’ presents a real and rare variety of compositions not often found in the plethora of unsigned recordings these days, its ordering carefully curated as an exquisite detail.
First track ‘Wrong’ opens with whispers before hotfooting it into a distinctly trippy groove. This brash, confident vibe is a stark contrast to second track ‘Winter’s Song’ where we see Alla (vocals) unveiled, naked, vunerable. ‘Right On Time’ is a return to a sassier, sexy side of the band, before final piece ‘You Will Go’ closes the work with a sullen and dark finale.
The Mouth Of Ghosts ooze an air of sensuality, their atmospheric work translating into awesome yet chilling alt-rock live shows that permit Alla’s unparalleled vocals to reign supreme.
The EP continues to deliver the band’s perfect dichotomy between a despondent gothic vibe and pretty, delicate guitar (albeit maintaining that typical deep morosity we expect from The Mouth of Ghosts). The result of these aural acrobatics pushes the band into an entirely different league of musicians.
The band released their debut single ‘When The Sun Sets’ in October 2012 (with ‘Close’ as a B-side) and are considered a mainstay of the alternative London music scene. Expect much more from these guys very soon.
