GHOST WAVE – Rad Summer Mixtape Fodder
New Zealand surf-rockers Ghost Wave are exporting a particularly sunshiny brand of euphoric beach tunes that make me want to bust out my Little Mermaid towel and nurse a watermelon juice all the way to Venice. This dreamy Auckland two-piece perfectly blends garage-pop simplicity with walkabout melodies and lyrics you can really hold hands to. Check out their video for “Sunsetter,” a trippy kaleidoscopic homage to the onset of summer, the platinum goodness of rock, and of course, cats.
