SIMIAN GHOST – Free Agent
The electronic chillwave scene has been taken over by some oddly moping bedroom producers recently. Which isn’t technically a bad thing because I LOVE the likes of Starslinger, Toro y Moi et al. But it’s nice to see a hark back to the M83 wail and power, evident in Simian Ghost, the creation of Sebastian Arnström.
Based in Sweden, the band tour as a trio and are breaking into the UK after signing with Heist or Hit and setting out plans to release a mini-album ‘Lovelorn‘ in November. Check out the first single from the album, ‘Free Agent’, a sweltering slice of surprisingly funky chillwave.
