|Face it, you miss big drum kits, long guitars solos, crushing dreamy distortion that leaves your ears and hearts bleeding, and yes, a bass solo from time to time just because it is that much fucking fun to play. The Ghost Lullaby, a metal-shoegaze rock group from Los Angeles, offers you “Button Eyes”, the first full-length CD release. The band combines the abstract sounds of Sonic Youth with the earth-shattering dynamic melodies of the Smashing Pumpkins. The group is shaped of Perrin Newell and Valerie Aiello on vocals and guitars, Oliver Newell on bass and Sam DiGiovanni on drums. With half the band growing up in Austin, Texas, the place where everyone plays guitar, it wasn’t hard to get plenty of rock experience and out grow the fabulous cheap pawnshop guitars every kid owns. Playing their first show ever at Room 710 in Austin, Texas, the band without delay called Los Angeles home soon after to become more experienced musicians in a new music scene without all of the comfort of friends in the audience cheering every time. Residing in Silverlake, The Ghost Lullaby has spent most of their live performances throughout the city in places like the Spaceland, The Scene, Knitting Factory, Bar 107, The Gig, King King, and what Los Angeles band hasn’t been through the torture of the Sunset Strip, The Whiskey and The Viper Room. This matchless band has shared the bill with heavy metal, post-punk and power-pop garage bands to soft shoegaze acts as Robin Guthrie of the Cocteau Twins and Broaddaylight. So, take a listen. What you'll come across is the rock band you've been waiting for.
