What Time Did We Meet Again?
Got back onto this band again recently after it came up in my Ipod rotation. The band's name is Cherry Ghost from North West England and their debut album Thirst For Romance contains some great gems like "4am" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1nC-uyhg1c , "Mountain Bird" and "Thirst For Romance" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1nC-uyhg1c .
First heard about them through Jarvis Cocker (the lead singer from Pulp for those that remember) and then him asking them to open for a leg of his European tour. They just released a brand new album Beneath This Burning Shoreline which I await to hear. Simon Aldred, the lead singer for Cherry Ghost, started as a solo act with a revolving door of musicians including interestingly enough a member of the Doves, Jimi Goodwin.
Check 'em out!
