The Mechanical Ghosts (Indie Rock) - Artist Discovery

Todays Artist Discovery features Indie Rock duo The Mechanical Ghosts!


Bursting with explosive rhythms, rich textures and powerfully deep lyrics, their recently released EP satisfyingly bridges the gap between old-school and new - merging together both cinematic and upbeat 80s inspired, synth heavy vibes with catchy hooks and memorable melodies - bringing to the table an entrancingly new and exciting listening experience...

The Mechanical Ghosts consists of long-time friends and former neighbours Phillip Killingsworth (vocals, bass, guitars, keys/synths) and Tyla-Joe Connett (drums, keyboards, guitar, bass).


Still relatively new on the scene, the two piece formed when Phillip and Tyla began writing what would become the duo's debut release back in February 2020 - marking an exciting new chapter in the talented musicians journeys so far...


Flash forward to 20th June and 'The Monster' EP was released, aiming to deliver an"immersive cinematic experience through its use of mechanical verve and deep soulfulness to create an uplifting but melancholy retro vibe."...



The energetically charged six track EP certainly doesn't fail to deliver - featuring a variety of shapes and textures throughout, showcasing the pairs solidly strong songwriting and performance abilities.


The duo fuse together a huge range of influnces from artists such as Depeche Mode, Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy and Daft Punk - as well as legendary composers such as one of the worlds finest, Hans Zimmer - to provide an enticing melting pot of sounds and styles that all work together in perfect harmony!


Honest, heartfelt lyrics and contagiously catchy vocal hooks are backed by strong and tightly locked instrumentation - oozing with live character and vibrant colours.



Whilst possessing a clear potential for commerical success, these guys undoubtedly bring something new and refreshing to the table. The future looks very bright for them indeed, we can't wait to see more!
