Formed in Austin in 2004, Ghostland Observatory has evolved its sound from the raw, noisy electro-funk of its earlier releases into something more danceable. Equal parts electro, psychedelia and glam-rock, the group's songs pivot on Aaron Behrens's signature vocals, which resemble Freddie Mercury's voice fused with Cedric Bixler-Zavala's, and the sultry electronic treatments of Thomas Turner, which recall the soundtrack work of Giorgio Moroder. With a spectacular live show that matches its music, Ghostland plays each gig like an arena-rock act, with a dazzling light show, KISS-like stage raps, histrionic antics and larger-than-life stage personas. With Ghostland Observatory, which releases all of its own records through its Trashy Moped imprint, it's all about giving fans a one-of-a-kind experience they'll remember.
