‘Safe’ is the third single from These Ghost’s Matthew Herbert co-produced sophomore album Still The Waves.
The track picks right up where previous single ‘Where Two Lines Meet’ left off with immediately blistering drums driving along an infectious bass and guitar sparring riff all sitting beneath vocalist Calum Duncan’s ethereal and unique voice.
Having completed a sell out UK tour in Support of Tall Ships following the release of the album, the band are now back on the road with an 11 date headline UK tour culminating in the release of this single, ‘Safe’ on 16th Feb.
These Ghosts is a joyous cacophony born of friendship and a desire to forge new sounds akin to a British Animal Collective with influences also coming from the likes of Modeselektor to Sigur Ros, The Invisible and Mew.

Praise for These Ghosts
These Ghosts make the sort of feverish, shadow-chasing music that’d keep Thom Yorke fretting at night.’ – Q Magazine
‘Enigmatically gorgeous and unsettling’ – The Line of Best Fit
‘These Ghosts serve it up on a platter of melancholic guitars akin to early Radiohead’ – NME
‘A mix of reverb-drenched vocals and forward-leaning production, it becomes pensive before developing into a saw-toothed monster by its clattering conclusion’ – DIY Magazine
‘These Ghosts construct meditative, introspective guitar music, delivered in a forward thinking immediate fashion. There’s a velvet lustre to their songwriting, a quiet patient intensity which recalls Radiohead’s fusion of splintered guitars and electronics.’ Clash
