Warm Ghost Signs With Partisan

Now that he’s recording under the moniker Warm Ghost, Paul Duncan has ditched traditional instrumentation in favor of electronics, synthesizers, drum machines and processed field recordings. Initially a side project, Warm Ghost has evolved into a band in collaboration with Oliver Chapoy.

Warm Ghost’s sound is an intricately arranged shimmering sonic world of twisting words and melodies. The group manages to mix elements of 80’s new wave, cold wave and synth pop with late 70’s disco, synth programming. On May 11th, the group released their debut EP, Claws Overhead, to warm reviews.

Recently, the Warm Ghost signed a deal with Partisan Records to re-release Claws Overhead with 4 additional songs before year’s end. The group is currently recording their debut album. If you’re interested in seeing them live, Ghost will be at Webster Hall Studio in New York City on December 9th.
