Ghost in Light

“Move Over” by Ghost In Light, from After Fox Meadow:

The St. Louis trio Ghost in Light is quite comfortable integrating doses of throttling postrock and dynamic volume shifts with its quieter moments. The band’s latest EP, After Fox Meadow, features seamless transitions between spaced-out reflection and brazen chord-bulldozing. Buzzing keyboards, harmonic latticework and spidery riffs abound, conjuring the yawning noise bursts of Explosions in the Sky, early Smashing Pumpkins and Hum’s burnt-sugar sheen. But in concert is where the band truly shines. Though each individual member is talented in his own right, Ghost in Light’s music becomes greater than the sum of its parts.
