Adiós Ghost, the up-and-coming indie rockers hailing from Brooklyn, are out with a simmering new single that we’re psyched to premiere on Pancakes & Whiskey today – and incidentally, can’t stop humming. With its far-out, ambling groove, “Uncanny Valley” is our first taste of their imminent debut LP, Fade Out With Your Phantoms, and a strong hook for anyone just now discovering these guys.
The title itself is a clever nod, because there is certainly something uncannily familiar about the valley we find ourselves in with Adiós Ghost. There’s a distinctly gospel-like, Appalachian vibe to “Uncanny Valley” that almost hearkens back to the old folk hymn, “Down in the Valley to Pray,” and carries with it even more of a rugged edge. With powerhouse backup vocals from fellow Brooklyn artists Nandi Plunkett (of Half Waif) and C.F. Watkins, the song is drenched in soulful, “ooh”-ing harmonies that suck you right into their world and out of your own.
If you dig what you hear, don’t miss Adiós Ghost at The Knockdown Center in Queens this Thursday, 3/9. They’ll be celebrating the album release, so you’ll get to hear all the latest. Tickets are available here.
