Ghost//Signals are the Geordie five-piece that have been catching everyone’s eye. Having ticked off a slew of big festivals over the last few years, and garnering radio play across stations like BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6Music as well as receiving lavish reviews across the board, it’s no wonder they’re up for a celebration.

Their twinkling, dark twist on indie pop is an amalgamation of the synth inspired 1975 sound and the jangling riffs of The Smiths, which comes together as a fun, upbeat romp through indie culture. With the release of their latest album Lives Defined By Winter Skies, the band prepare for a show at The Common Room in Newcastle on Saturday 14th January.

Kicking off the year in style, they’ve also amassed a hefty supply of amazing local talent in support. Audiences can expect Gothic, drum-led sounds of  William Denton Wilde, the acoustic activism of Kieran Gallon, the swirling sadness of  Sunderland’s Labyrinthine Oceans and Teesside’s alt. Goths The Golden Age of Nothing.

In all, it promises to be a celebratory evening of dark, yet accessible sounds just perfect for the winter nights.

Ghost//Signals, The Golden Age Of Nothing, Labyrinthine Oceans, Kieran Gallon and William Denton Wilde play The Common Room, Newcastle on Saturday 14th January.
