Ghost Signals

Hailing from Sunderland and Newcastle, the four-piece, who have been on the music scene since 2015, consists of Rick Lanning (vocals / guitar), Andy Johnson (bass), Mark Cliff (drums) and George Colclough (guitar).

With a sound inspired by the likes of The Cure, Pulp and The Cribs, the emerging band has hit some milestones this year; releasing two tracks, Queen Of The Oxygen Thieves and Hectoring, both of which received airplay on the BBC Newcastle Introducing show, as well as securing slots at some of the region’s best festivals including Hit The North, Evolution Emerging and Lindisfarne Festival.

The band are quickly making a name for themselves with their sound which blends classic goth-rock with indie-pop melodies – a formula which has seen their fan base grow rapidly since the release of their track Start Families: Avoid Hip Parties last year.
