There's a bit of a ghostly theme going on here...

Killer hip-hop influenced beats from the delight that is Ghost Eyes in their single released yesterday, 'Phantom Mountain'. The buzzsaw bass cuts deep and works with the mildly distorted drums to contrast the soft, anxious and unassuming vocals. There's definitely an Eastern influence in this particular song, and the overall tone - especially the vocals - reminds me of These New Puritans (if you don't know them, get to know them).

The video is pretty cool too, featuring some weird dancing. If you like their lightly layered samples, dirty electronica and totally heavy beats, check out Ghost Eyes on their SoundCloud or Myspace.

And if you really like them, go see them at these places:

17 May The Social, London
19 May The Queen Of Hoxton, London
21 May The Arches, Glasgow
22 May The Deaf Institute, Manchester
05 Aug Underage Festival, London
