The latest band to carry the 80s synth revival torch is New York duo Ghost Beach. The group’s new single, “Miracle”, merges the laid back electronics of Neon Indian with the playful summertime rhythms of Best Coast. The simple high-pitched, lo-fi guitar riff that opens the song lays a peppy foundation that’s immediately accompanied by a bass and electric key beat fit for driving up an ocean freeway with the windows down. The steady grooves were built for sunny day chilling, and Josh Ocean’s vocals cut the sweetness with a hint of poppy acidity. The pair has concocted quite the summer cocktail, so strap on your Ray Bans and give it a listen.
