I’m seeing Maroon5 spirits floating through Jay-Z, I’m seeing We the Ghost. I’m seeing Simple Plan and One Republic fans seeing these ghosts for sure.. How I love a good multi-genre band. 1/3 Electro pop, 1/3 indie rock and 1/3 Rap. Deep Synth beds, catchy radio friendly lyrics and a beautiful violinist soaking the band with short bursts of romantic riffs. When I land on bands like We the Ghost, I wish we were a record label or distribution company. These boys (plus the estrogen!) are ready to deliver to teenaged girls around the world. They are no one-hit-wonder either, with an album of the year Hollywood Awards credit under their belt already, this band has a solid music portfolio.
Bio: “They” say We The Ghost is post-rock, but what does that mean? Essentially, it means that this decade has ushered in a new sound that is leaving all the previous versions of rock ‘n roll in the past, and We The Ghost is at the forefront of this new musical revolution. Their music brings together the cool of indie rock with the beats of hip-hop, the drowning enthusiasm of dubstep, the funk of reggae, and the forever catchy lyrics and melodies of pop music.
Success always begets growth, and that is just what the band did in 2013. They began reaching way beyond Tulsa and took their music to surrounding markets, including performances at SXSW in Austin, TX and co-headlining the Texas State Fair the night of the Red River Rivalry between Oklahoma University and Texas. They also played in Dallas, Oklahoma City and Ft. Smith, AR. March of 2013 brought them the opportunity to open for Imagine Dragons at the University of TuIsa Reynolds Center in front of a sold out crowd of 8,000 screaming students and locals fans. Their crowning achievement came at the end of the year, though, as their new album Sinking Suspicion won 2013 ROCK ALBUM OF THE YEAR at the L.A. Music Awards at the historic Avalon Theater in Hollywood, CA.
