Ghosts of Our Former Selves is the London-based project comprised of lead-singer Theo Brehony, guitarist Sanderson Rocha, and producer Fred Ala. We introduced them with the track “The Island“. Now they’ve announced the release of a new EP titled Moog which will be out on June 26th. Today we have the pleasure to premiere the opening track “Life’s What You Make It“, a cover of Talk Talk’s 80’s single.
According to the press release, Written in a brand new studio setting in North London, the Bass Moog EP represents a new layer to the trio’s sound. Working alongside Franc Moody’s synth expert Jon Moody, the EP’s lead track “Life’s What You Make It”- Showcases the band’s unique take on funk, building to an uplifting, gospel section that’s reminiscent of Screamadelica.
The EP includes an eccentric & brilliant cover of The 1975’s “Love It If We Made It”. Lead singer Theo was captivated by the relevance of the lyrics in the current climate so the band set about re-working the track to their nuanced, electro-funk style. The EP also features “Father’s Song”, a track built from a poem Theo’s father had written for him as a child. Recently having passed away, Theo wanted to put his words to music as a melancholic, musical tribute.
