There are three things you can count on at ATG: fresh events, fresh tunes, and fresh bands. Today we’re bringing you a new band straight off the streets of New York City called Rocket and the Ghost. The five piece group will “whisper in your ear one minute and make you holler from a mountain top the next.” Kiyoshi Matsuyama and Lily Nussbaum lead the band and will melt your heart like ice cream over warm apple pie with saccharine-sweet songs and beautiful boy/girl harmonies.
I had the chance to see the group perform last Thursday night at The Living Room where they played for an intimate room. Though the crowd sat at candlelit tables, you could tell that all they wanted to do was get up and dance. If you’re in NYC, catch them this Thursday once again at The Living Room. Listen to their single “No One Likes You” below plus a new track “Shame” in the video above.
