Why we love GHOST TIGER here at GMP:
The Ghost Tiger vibe is surreal. The surprise that they are from our hometown meant we were lucky enough to catch one of their live performances here in Santa Barbara, which was completely unexpected. And was it a memorable experience - the venue went from a calm dinner ambience to a packed dance floor with no room to move - a complete 180 from before they took the stage. Their energy just continued to grow and grow throughout their set. And it says so much about a band's ability to captivate a crowd when they’re given a split second “mic-check” soundcheck and 30 short minutes to play - and they delivered big time, wasting not a moment to leave an impression on everyone in the room.
The description the band gives themselves is spot on - Their sound is indie-rock mixed with a 60’s girl group vibe supported by rhythms rooted in African and other world styles. It’s a genuinely organic connection between everyone in the band. To remove any one instrument or part would disrupt the entire Ghost Tiger sound. They’ve done such a good job of meshing their instrumentation, which at first looks fairly standard, but sounds completely new with a serious edge all their own.
