With their dreamy melodies, galaxy feel and Britpop overtones, Los Angeles-based indie band United Ghosts blends a classic psychedelic and shoegaze sound while still keeping a very futuristic mix in their music. The band started out as a duo with Axel Steurwald and Sha Sabi as boy/girl vocals, who began in a simple garage studio, at the end of a cul-de-sac. The pair worked on recording some vocals during their first encounter and knew it was the beginning of a beautiful band. Later, the band added guitarist Jason O, who writes with the duo as well as drummer Sean Burgess.
The band returns with a new single and music video, “Unhypnotized,” and are pleased to give fans an early preview of what they can expect for their upcoming debut LP, which is due to be released in January. The “Unhypnotized” music video, directed by Arian Soheili, turns out to be very hypnotic, contrary to what the title may suggest. Set in a L.A. warehouse filled with a cultish crowd, radiant hues and majestic sound, it is definitely worth a view. United Ghosts is giving away a free download of the track for a limited time to hold fans over till the release of the upcoming album. The download is available exclusively on the band’s SoundCloud page.
