It’s payday week, it’s closing in on the new month of October and we’re heading for another blistering hot summer but one thing remains the same – FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE!
Aces n Spades and Kill City Blues have teamed up and are doing their free weekly Friday Night Live shows and this Friday, they’re bringing along Lo-Ghost.
Lo-ghost is an alt-pop duo from Cape Town. Comprised of Evan Strauss and Shannon Devy, the dual-fronted electronic outfit explores themes of love, loss and the human condition through dark synthesis, deep and danceable electronic beats, and powerful vocal performances. Their fiercely honest songwriting utilises accessible pop sensibilities to deliver an affecting and impactful set with a unique and memorable sonic signature.
Lo-ghost released their first full-length album, “There’s Blood In My Body and It Sounds Like This:” in July 2017 after entering the scene mid-2016 with a stunning debut video release for “Ghost in a Blood Machine”, the lead single off their debut EP “Mother”. The video, which addresses issues of internalised homophobia, presents a poignant and heart-breaking narrative of the interplay between love and shame, performed and choreographed by Chester Martinez (FKA Twigs, “Honey 2”) and Devon Marshbank. The work was picked up and featured by media outlets across the continent.
