Ghösh’s Dear Daddy single will get a physical release via Ranch Jams
Philly electronic / punk two-piece Ghösh absolutely blew our minds opening for Nah at Cousin Danny’s last month, but it was hardly their first appearance on the scene. The band — made up of Symphony Spell and Zachary Devereux Fairbrother — has been around for about a year, and played previous high-profile sets opening for Pissed Jeans on New Year’s Eve at Boot & Saddle, and joining Empath at their album release party back in July.
Now, Ghösh’s debut single — which hit streaming services last year — is getting a vinyl reissue by the folks at local label Ranch Jams.
The single’s a-side is the furious “Dear Daddy,” a piercing protest song taking down police violence, and further, holding perpetrators of violence accountable, even if (especially if) they are close to us: “ACAB, even my dad,” screams Spell, and though the lyrics don’t go too tremendously deeper than that cathartic, angry howl, they kind of don’t need to — it’s all right there.
The b-side is a bit more lighthearted, but equally apt to get folks freaking out: a wiry cover of Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff” that’s the perfect mix of detached parody and kindred-spirit nihilism. Take a listen below, and order the record at Bandcamp.
