Hailing straight out of Portsmouth comes a 9-piece collective of independent rappers and musicians known as 'South Coast Ghosts.'
Creating tracks that lend themselves to a variety of genres - Hip-Hop, Soul, Rock and Jazz - the result is a rich array of soulful sounds packed with live instrumentation and perceptive lyricism.
The Ghosts formed in late 2020 and have since made shockwaves with electrifying performances at the likes of Victorious Festival, Haslemere Festival, Icebreaker Festival and Portsmouth's legendary The Wedgewood Rooms. They have also been featured on the airwaves of local and national radio, with 'Stay Free' being crowned as Record of the Week on BBC Radio Solent, while 'Medicine' earned its rightful place on the BBC Radio 6 Introducing Mixtape.
In 2022, their debut album 'Silent Assassins' received further recognition on BBC Introducing, with infectious melodies and thought-provoking lyrics resonating with listeners, solidifying South Coast Ghosts' position in the local Portsmouth music scene and beyond.
South Coast Ghosts' forthcoming second album is in the works and will be taking their sound to another level. With hard hitting beats and powerful female vocals leading the way, the lead single "Gaslight" is a fusion of dance and hip-hop. Trademark raps and a massive finish showcase the band's ability to seamlessly blend genres, creating an experience that transcends conventional boundaries. The lyrics explore the theme of overcoming manipulation and finding the strength to escape the chains of a toxic past. In a world of deceit and subterfuge, allow this little lantern to light your way.
"Gaslight" will be available on all major streaming platforms from April 12th, and the Ghosts' new album is penned for release late July.
