Ghosts

Three darkwave angels whose grungy headquarters is in East Van. The Ghosts are Megan Krenbrink on drums, Andrew Walker on guitar and Joey Chaos yelling into a mic.  A reactive, cathartic response to social and political discord, social ennui, love and anomie. We melt digital technology and analog instrumentation to create distorted synthetic soundscapes, jagged guitar blasts and brutalist beats to carry shrouded words. We’ve snuck onto stages big and small, from house parties to Juno week.  
Elegy is our most recent EP. It was written as a reactive, cathartic response to political discord, social ennui, love, addiction and death. Most of the instrumentation was recorded live – a first for us – and captures the raw energy of our stage show. Written and produced by Joey Chaos, Andrew Walker and Megan Krenbrink with additional production by Chris Peterson (OHM, Frontline Assembly, Decree) and additional engineering by Elliot Fanglord (Freak Dream). Elegy was mastered by Greg Reely and is the follow up to our single Fear (2016) and our full length album Polarizer (2013).
