Artist Spotlight: New City Ghost
It's time for another edition of Artist Spotlight as we take a look at the Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard based band known as New City Ghost. The band consists of Dallas on lead vocals and guitar, Joe on vocals and guitar, Mike on bass, and Kyle on drums. The band has an experimental, indie leaning edge to them with high energy guitar riffs and a free form experimentation at hand to let each member bring their individual ideas to the table and present it in a format that allows the audience member to extract certain elements from it that they can take with them to heart and become devoted followers of the group in the process. These guys played at TT the Bear's last Saturday and unfortunately I missed their set due to heavy traffic getting to the venue, but I managed to interact with one of the guys afterwards who handed me a CD and really appreciated his earnest effort of him going around and promoting his band to everyone in the audience, which is not an easy thing to do and shows the dedication that they exude to their craft. A terrific upstart band deserving of some exposure here on the site. Some tracks for you to check out include "Stolen" and "Pile of Bones".
