Watch the official music video for ‘In Faith So Blind (featuring The Pagans SOH)’ below:

The Bongo Club is about several things. It’s about rock’n’roll and being young, today. It’s about entering the stage like a boxer, leaving it 40 minutes later sweating, it’s about hating your day job and loving every minute on a narrow stage on a week night! No bad gigs, never a bad audience – just a band totally in love with what they do and wanting to take it all the way by working harder and being more to the point than the rest.

Manchester artist Ghosts Of Social Networks has been turning heads since arriving on the UK music scene.

Nathan Till, the creative force behind GOSN, is joined by long standing backing band members Nico Maccarinelli (drums), Andrea Gobbi (bass) and John Miles (guitar) to form the foundations of the live act.

Taking inspiration from new wave artists such as The Cure, Bauhaus, Echo and The Bunnymen as well as contemporary acts like Nick Cave and The National, Till makes music that sounds classic yet offers a fresh veneer on the craft of songwriting.

Debut single ‘Love Potion’ acclaimed for its reverberant production, gritty realism and uplifting nod towards dream-pop gained numerous spot plays on Lamacq’s drive time and recommends show as well as multi national and regional radio plays. A string of followup singles ensued further demonstrating GOSN‘s ability to write contemporary songs that forge substance,innovation and timeless melody.

“An embracing sound” – Steve Lamacq

“A rip roaring, take no prisoners track” – Tom Robinson 

“Much like all the best Manchester songwriters” – Manchester Evening News

“Proudly captures an essential Manchester vibe” – Louder Than War
