Thanks to Ed at the wonderful 17 seconds who first featured this band. Not to be confused with Ghosts who were tipped to the next big thing a few years ago, The Ghosts are a 5 piece London band formed out of the ashes of Ou Est Le Swimming Pool , unfortunately maybe best known by the suicide of the lead singer who jumped from a mast in the backstage area of a music festival.
The lp is called the End and at this point you may expect to be taken on a journey of darkness and sorrow especially as band leader Alex Starling is quoted as saying Ghosts was an opportunity for Palmer to fill the "absolute emptiness I felt at my lowest point … a way of hopefully turning a negative into a positive.
What we get is a joyous lp of pop music that switches between a more electronic backing and mow guitar driven stuff. Like a cross between the Lightening Seeds at their best, sprinkled with Hot Chip and the poppier elements of New Order.
The first 2 singles Ghosts and Enough Time give you an idea of what to expect (including the second one which lifts the intro to OMD's Enola Gay)
The End is a great hook laden debut and you can buy it here
