Manchester artist Ghosts of Social Networks has been turning heads since arriving on the UK music scene, most notably gaining early support from both Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson of BBC 6Music.
Nathan Till, the creative prowess behind GOSN, is inquisitive by nature which informs his approach to songwriting. Till is joined by long standing band members Ben Dargue (drums) and Andrea Gobbi (bass) to form the foundations of the live act.
Taking inspiration from new wave artists such as The Cure, Bauhaus, Echo and The Bunnymen as well as contemporary artists like Nick Cave and The National, Till makes music that sounds classic yet offers a fresh perspective on the craft of songwriting.
Debut single ‘Love Potion’ acclaimed for its reverberant production, gritty realism and uplifting nod towards dream-pop gained numerous spot plays on Lamacq's drivetime and recommends show as well as multi national and regional radio plays. Follow up ‘Comeback Kid’; described as a retro tinged, indie rock track with infectious choruses further demonstrated Till's ability to write well structured contemporary songs that aim for the back of the venue.
Ghosts Of Social Networks is fast becoming a cult musical project known for bridging substance with timeless melody.
