The Ghosts formed when Alex Starling (Ou Est Le Swimming Pool) was introduced to New York trained jazz drummer Ian Palmer. They began to work with Alex Sharman and Dan Whiffin on what would become their debut album ‘The End’.


Written and recorded in two months the album received rave reviews in both the UK and abroad. The band signed deals in the US, Canada and Russia and began to tour extensively over the next few years. After a break for Alex to work on writing projects and for Ian to perform a series of sell out concerts alongside legendary drummers Steve Gadd and Benny Greb, they have returned with “We Lie To Ourselves’.


The single is mixed by Eduardo De La Paz (Arcade Fire, The National, Florence and The Machine) and the video has been nominated for the McLaren Award at this years Edinburgh International Film Festival.


The Ghosts’ music has been featured heavily on Sky Sports, MTV and on US TV shows such as the ABC NETWORK drama Red Widow.
