paperback ghosts



Released: 7th Jul 2014



Released: 7th Jul 2014


Blending psychedelia, folk-rock, garage muscle & 4am sadness, the songs on their 7th album are inspired by the psycho-geography of walks in North London woods & in the forgotten grey hinterland of the city’s back streets.

'Paperback Ghosts' comes soaked in autumn melancholy. Tender-hearted but not miserable, defiant but not angry, it maintains the delicate balance that has always been Comet Gain’s strength. 'Paperback Ghosts' offers us a glimpse into a haunted half-world with its strings, yearning harmonies, 12-string acoustic guitars & half-focused vision of pianos in reverb, while remaining at heart a pop record, a richly textured affirmation of Comet Gain’s 20 year anti-career.
