The first single to be released from Ghost Beach’s Crazy Hearts record label is called Flicker and its owners, PROM, attribute to it the perfect melding of high flying, seasonal dream-pop and wavy electronics. It’s akin to acts like New Zealand’s The Naked & Famous or Phantogram. Appropriately busy drum tracks pulsate throughout this track, lifting up every section of the piece, especially the vocal melodies of Gabriel Stanley, which range from lethargic to simply skyrocketing.
The label debut from both PROM and Crazy Heart Records shows promise, both in the music of the band itself and the selection skills of the boys at Ghost Beach. Bring on the rest.
