Spirit Ghost is a four piece garage-rock outfit based in Austin, Texas. The band’s frontman, Alex Whitelaw is joined by Bill Hickey (guitar), John Nicholson (bass), Tim Zoidis (guitar), and accompanied by Sarah Addi (harmonies). Spirit Ghost curates nostalgic classic tones/songwriting born out of the 50’s and 60’s garage rock era, and ultimately fuses innovative contemporary elements. The band emanates something familiar to fans of early rock and roll, while maintaining a surf rock, lo-fi edge.
Their latest album “Skeleton Surf Rider” was released on May 11th, 2018. The album is a essential conversation on: love, death, familial strain, and working class struggles, told over the course of 11 jangly, reverb-driven, garage-pop songs. The band’s melodic, surf sound juxtaposed with the lyrical density comes together to deliver a project of dimensionality and alluring ease. Spirit Ghost came into Studio 1A for our last After Hours show of 2018. You can check out “Skeleton Surf Rider” and hear the full studio session down below!
