Taking a wealth of inspiration from the guitar-driven indie/alternative heyday which spanned the ‘80s, ‘90s and ‘00s, Meeanjin/Brisbane based group Ghost College bring forward a sound and approach which unashamedly adds voice to the enduring relevance of DIY punk music today.
Across the four Ghost College singles released since the three-piece’s inception in 2020, contradictory intentions run rife: apparent attempts to conjure up something deeper and darker than what might be expected, yet, also a sense of having had enough of the search for the former.
Ghost College has received a range of support across radio so far, with ongoing air-play on Brisbane’s favourite community station 4ZZZ, as well as a placement within the 4ZZZ Hot 100 for their single RAD/SAD. The band has also received praise and positive review among the Triple J Unearthed curators and audience as well as an unsolicited feature on the ever- popular Short Fast Loud show.
The group is keeping busy with Gig bookings in the Brisbane and surrounding regions whilst building towards a debut full-length record release for 2022.
The members of Ghost College wish to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land they live on: the Turrbal people and the Yuggera people.
