Ghosts of Our Former Selves are singer Theo Brehony, guitarist Sanderson Rocha and producer Fred Ala. They have just returned with their brilliant new EP, Golden.

On the EP title track, the band replace their go-to synth and brass sounds with strings… an unusual choice for Brehony but one that ends up paving the way to something really special. Topped with the addition of Baby Sol’s silky vocals on the harmonies and outro, the end of the track builds to a big gospel-rock groove as it finishes.

Elaborating further, the band say, “We felt that the addition of strings to the song took it to the ‘70s in a way we had not achieved before. This is one of the best songs we’ve written and the strings add to the emotion. By the time it ends we are somewhere between Massive Attack and Elton John!”

The EP release is inspired by Brehony becoming a father and also features a cover of Paul Simon’s “Mother and Child Reunion”. The four-track project is beautifully executed and proves what an exceptional talent the London-based band is.
