If you’re looking for a modern spin on 70’s folk/Americana then you’ll love Galapaghost out of Austin, Texas. For those into Midlake, Espers, Iron & Wine, Low Roar, and Simon & Garfunkel, Galapaghost’s latest offering ‘I Never Arrived‘ takes us a progression into experimentation with a more alternative sound, while managing to work in synths and various other kinds of ‘electronic’ without the album sounding ‘produced’ in anyway.
Casey Chandler‘s soft, dark vocals manage to drive the tracks forward,creating the perfect atmosphere for those quiet, introspective moments we all crave from time to time.
The entire album is available for free public streaming on Soundcloud, Bandcamp and Spotify.
