Elliot & The Ghost
“A smoldering piece of dark rock, perfect for a Tarantino-esque cannonball run through the cool desert night. Elliot & The Ghost prove to be a unique mix of rock and roll, darkly tinged folk, and punk” – SPIN

Elliot & The Ghost came together in 2014 in New York City. With singer William Thompson, drummer Daniel Edwards, guitarist Brett Giroux, and bassist Connor Jones, the band’s very first performances were held in old Brooklyn loft spaces and scuzzy dives. Within a year’s time the group was invited as direct support alongside Weezer, and has since shared stages with the late B.B. King, Team Spirit, Miniature Tigers, amongst many others.

Artist Direct praised Elliot & The Ghost as “a vibrant painting with sonic colors spanning Nick Cave-style cinematic musings, surfed-up post-punk guitars evocative of The Smiths and The Clash, and eerily danceable beats that prove instantly magnetic. Still, descriptions don't do it justice. You've just got to let Elliot & The Ghost haunt you.” Flavorpill lauded their “brand of Southern influenced pop-rock,” and Gimme Shutter declared them “mesmerizing.” Similarly, CMJ applauded their “fresh, airy kind of surf-pop in the vein of early Rosebuds or the Shins stripped of cardigans and sent back to a dank basement to get a little tipsy and start all over.”

The band recently completed a North American tour, and is currently promoting a series of new singles with accompanying videos and artwork.
