“Switching between indie and electronics, the material has a glowing, glistening feel, reminiscent of the art house side of Talk Talk, for example, while still being resolutely pop” – Clash
"Impressive epic dimensions!" - Chris Hawkins (BBC 6 Music)
Manchester four-piece Passion Falls have unveiled the engrossing animated video for their brand new single ‘Chasing Ghosts’, ahead of the release of their debut EP ‘The Greatest Adventure’ on February 19th on MUK Records.
Crafted by Russian animator Andrey Shushkov, the 'Chasing Ghosts’ video pieces together an ephemeral love story, featuring a trippy hot air balloon journey and moonlit horse rides, fit for the most romantic of narratives. With added artistic elements of mechanics and machinery, this encapsulating fairytale makes for a truly fascinating watch. You can see the video below.
With widespread support for their debut - including a Clash Magazine video premiere, first national radio plays via BBC 6 Music's Chris Hawkins, and a locker full of reviews from music blogs and publications - the shimmering newcomers take even bigger strides forward with ‘Chasing Ghosts’. It’s a Foals-esque piano pop single, brimming with dramatic beauty and further showcasing lead singer Jonny Holland’s soaring vocals, finely crafted songwriting and effortless knack for penning lump-in-the-throat finales.
Recorded in London with producer Dave Pemberton (Prodigy, Groove Armada) and Manchester with Jim Spencer (New Order, The Charlatans, Jonny Marr) the band’s forthcoming debut EP ‘The Greatest Adventure’ fittingly showcases the band’s emotive brand of indie electronica.
To coincide with their forthcoming release, the band are set to make their live debut in style with a show in their hometown of Manchester at the 700-capacity venue Gorilla, with hotly-tipped Australians, Fairchild. Tickets can be purchased HERE.
Sonically, a marriage of old and new, Passion Falls are at times reminiscent of the epic qualities of contemporaries such as The Temper Trap and Foals, whilst also crossing into the art-house territories of Talk Talk, Depeche Mode and early Simple Minds.
In addition to ‘Chasing Ghosts’, the title track of their debut EP, 'The Greatest Adventure', is available now for instant download and stream, with the full EP available from February 19th through MUK Records.
