Exit Ghost

Chicago mainstays Exit Ghost announce the release of their new single “Golden” b/w “Yellow Hat”, available for digital download May 15 on Walk-In Records.

The single marks Exit Ghost’s first release since 2013’s Elston, a self-produced collection of atmospheric, broodingly melodic work garnering critical reception from Daytrotter, Gaper’s Block, and Paste Magazine, among others. 

Returning to the studio after a year spent touring and finishing albums with Chicago notables Quinn Tsan, Marrow, and Sima Cunningham, Exit Ghost gives us a snapshot of impressionists at work: mellow, 70’s-inflected wurltizer and Curtis Schreiber’s muted drums provide a warm, murky backdrop for the twin guitars of Dorian Gehring and Michael Golas as they chime and grunt a tasteful counter to Evan Holmes’ legato, Laurel Canyon tenor.

“Yellow Hat” and “Golden” are now streaming via Walk-In Records and exitghostmusic.com—fans of Midlake, The National, and Sharon Van Etten should spend some real time with this new single from Exit Ghost, and set their expectations high for a Chicago scene pulsing with new music.
