The Ghost - War Kids

The Ghost may well be the first act I've ever heard from the Faroe Islands. Although advertised as an electronic duo, War Kids sounds more like the work of a vaguely dated indie guitar band (think The Wannadies) with a little electronic window dressing. Tracks like 'Something New' and recent single 'City Lights' have big choruses that could make for decent festival moshing fodder this summer. However, unlike, say, MGMT they fail to carve out an identity of their own, making me think they'll struggle to be remembered once the tents and sleeping bags have been packed away.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
