Derby two-piece Ghost Twins are set to release their debut album Never Fear Total Failure this April. Fresh and forward-thinking with an independent sound, the record represents a new attitude for Ghost Twins, infusing experimental and leftfield ideas with huge melodic pop moments of sheer brilliance.
Never Fear Total Failure represents personal struggle and the eventual hope we can eventually achieve through our darkest hours. Lead track “2006” sees Ghost Twins’ experimentations with synthesisers and vocal manipulation continue, expressing the endeavours of humanity through times of torment and framing the album perfectly. One-half of Ghost Twins, Chris Jones, explains that the aim of “2006” was to create a song that ‘has a relentless, disorientating sound that mirrors the confusion of a troubled soul’. Previous single “Unknown Animal” is also featured on the album, a flawless bridge for listeners to experience Ghost Twins’ ever-increasing leftfield sound.
Never Fear Total Failure is a mystifyingly beautiful record, combing the unstoppable emotions of ecstasy and anguish into a piece that is both deeply human and soul-affirming. Whilst the experimental side of Ghost Twins has increased on their debut album, their talent in creating monumental moments in a sound that everyone can relate to has equally excelled.
Ghost Twins’ debut album Never Fear Total Failure will be self released through featherweight recordings on April 14th on both physical and digital formats.
