The Sound Of Color In Space is the new album from Electro-Synth Desert/Stoner Rockers – Ghost:Hello – and the first feeling listening to this album was – WTF DID I JUST LISTEN TO!!! - I wasn’t sure if I enjoyed it or actually understood what was going on. As Ghost:Hello aren’t your usual band. I’ve never heard of a band adding Electronic and Synth music to Desert/Stoner Rock before.

However after a few more listens Ghost:Hello have created an intriguing and exciting wild album that dares to be different. Sure there are a few Desert/Stoner Rock grooves we’ve heard before but when the Electro/Synth vibes appear then all bets are off the table and Ghost:Hello become a wild force of nature with their heavy electronic sounds.

The songs are quite catchy and have a free-flowing vibe that allows the band to play with a more experimental Psychedelic Doom atmosphere. The first couple songs are purely instrumental with Alcubierre Metric and Fingerstache showing you what the band can do with their blend of Electro-Doom or Electro-Stoner riffs.

The vocals finally appear on the excellent sounding 3rd track – Perfect. The lyrics are quite simple but the vocal delivery and experimental sounds make the song come alive. It’s quite unconventional but Ghost:Hello make this work with their undeniable charm and huge likeability that remains the focal point of the entire album.

Other cool songs to check out are: The Mouth Of The Gift Horse, Bardo State, Nemesis and Poison Swan – with the band exploring and developing their weird Electro-Stoner sound further with some nice bursts of Desert Rock and Doom vibes suddenly appearing.

The production is clear, loud and crisp and one that allows Ghost:Hello to confuse and delight the listener with their strange hybrid sound.

The Sound Of Color In Space allows Ghost:Hello to be a highly original band in their own right and I’m excited to see what the band have in store for their next record. As this is one wild ride you won’t be able to find or experience anywhere else. Awesome stuff!!!
