Daniel Crossan, Matthew Lewis and Tom Mackay initially met at a Hackney Wick rave. Years passed, with each member joining the UK rock circuit with their respective bands, touring with the likes of Kids in Glass Houses, The Blackout and Fightstar. After reuniting in a studio in North London, Gravity Ghost was formed.
First stop was Poland where they recorded ‘Heartbeats (Rewind)’ at Saraswati Studios which was subsequently mixed by Brendan Davies at Karma studios in Thailand. Infusing soaring pop melodies with their diverse influences of warehouse dance music, 80s synths and American post-hardcore guitar riffs, they created a highly addictive, radio friendly sound that is set to invade the UK music scene.
Remixes come from Gareth Stone and Still; Still brings an energetic electro-house vibe ready for the summer festivals while electronic producer Gareth Stone delivers a chilled terrace mix.
Gravity Ghost’s sound is described as ‘Two Door Cinema Club meets Dr. Luke’ and ‘Heartbeats (Rewind)’ is the perfect introduction to the trio.
This music was created for the Gareth Pugh Monolith installation at Selfridges. Created with the department store to mark Pugh’s first appearance on the London Collection: Men’s schedule, Monolith takes you on a virtual reality journey, visually immersing you into the world of Pugh’s menswear collections. The two-metre tall chamber is located in Menswear on the store’s first floor, and is ‘part art installation, part futuristic fashion film and part fairground ride’. The project was brought to life by East London creatives Inition, with a soundtrack by Matthew Stone. The installation serves as a preview to the mid-January launch of Selfridges’ first store-wide creative concept of 2014, The Festival of Imagination, which celebrates the world’s most inspiring innovators, creatives and architects.
