It’s fair to say that a sense of longing and reflection permeates Ghosty’s music. Members Andrew Connor, Mike Nolte, and Bill Belzer aren’t sure why this is. It would seem that Ghosty is attempting to understand its own inner child, ambitiously and optimistically hoping that through introspection they might stumble onto universal truths and “connect” with other human beings. Ghosty occasionally fears that its devotion to obsession with pop music has “gone too far” or is having an “irreversible corrosive impact” on other aspects of its life, but that’s probably just Ghosty being paranoid.
Between years spent in Lawrence, KS and Kansas City, MO, Ghosty has managed to catch several new hooks out of the air, and from these hooks, build refreshing tunes.
