In 2017 (link) and again in 2019 (link) we spent a considerable portion of our digital ink budget (minus the portion seconded to our beverage purchase budget) extolling the virtues of English band Holiday Ghosts. We recently were wondering whether the band was still together and writing music when we discovered the video for "Off Grid" -- a spanking new tune from the Falmouth-based artists. The tune chugs and bounces like a terrific soundtrack for your first springtime drive with the windows down while male/female vocals spin the tale. And the happiest news is that the band's next album North Street Air will be out May 21 via Fat Cat Records.
The core of Holiday Ghosts is Katja Rackin and Sam Stacpoole. For the new album, they have recruited former band member Charles Murphy and others.
