The Duke Spirit – Wounded Wing

The Duke Spirit

The Duke Spirit

London four-piece, The Duke Spirit, are back with the new video for ‘Wounded Wing’, taken from their album, ‘KIN’.

Headed up by strong front woman, Liela, ‘Wounded Wing’ is a sultry rock number, that fits nicely amongst the other shimmering alt-indie anthems throughout ‘KIN’, which was recorded by Simon Raymonde (Bella Union / Cocteau Twins).

‘KIN’ explores the frailty of life and the nobility that can be observed by death, and was written following such experiences. It is out now, via Red Essential.

Knocking Ghost – Soul Aspiration

Knocking Ghost

Knocking Ghost

Knocking Ghost is an electronic duo from London consisting of Rob Taylor (Vocals/Guitar) and Neil Quinlan (Synth/Guitar). The duo started as a remix collective called Starshapes, doing remixes for Bastille and Erasure.

In late 2012 they decided to make their own music which lead to the release of their debut EP ‘Distractions’ in late January 2013.

The band describe their music as a mix of ‘contemporary dance floor music with part late 70’s early 80’s pop…but always something with a big brooding soul and a silver lining’.

Their new single ‘Soul Aspiration’, although mainstream-pleasing, still includes enough edge to intrigue those lovers of 80’s electro.

The catchy track was mixed by Gareth Jones (Depeche ModeErasureMapsLiars) and the single includes the b-side ‘Fools’ and a Joe Marshall remix, which can be purchased on iTunes here.
