The Mouth Of Ghosts
“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
London-based quintet The Mouth of Ghosts prides itself on a unique creation: a fusion of alternative rock and trip-hop, with lashings of atmosphere and tension in their tracks.
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.
The final creation, the current incarnation of The Mouth Of Ghosts exudes sexy alt-rock textures and layers of atmosphere and intrigue. In parts their arrangements are sweet and pretty. In others, they can be forcefully brilliant.
In August 2012, The Mouth of Ghosts signed to Red Dragon Records. The single ‘When The Sun Sets’ was released on 27 October 2012 (with ‘Close’ as a B-side), and received support from BBC Radio 6, counting Tom Robinson as quite the fan, as well as numerous other stations.
The band plans to follow up this release before the end of the year, demonstrating the force that they have indeed become.
