Pls, You Must Be a Dream by GHXST










From Los Angeles, noise rock/shoegaze band GHXST, have announced the release of their debut album, Admire, following on from their EP Dark Days from 2020. The band's first full length will be out on April 22nd, 2022.

Commenting on Pls, You Must Be A Dream, the first single from the album, GHXST say that it "is an ode to the obsessions that haunt you, like a half-remembered scene from an arthouse film. As Shelley X coldly intones 'You’re the only one' over a menacing surf riff, it’s not clear whether it’s for a lost love or a memory of times past. As always, the allure is in the unknown." The song sways with enticement and dark intensity, blending a nasty tone with airy vocals.

The accompanying video was directed and edited by GHXST member Shelley X.

Admire was written and recorded in California, mixed by long-time collaborator and UK producer James Aparicio (Nick Cave, Depeche Mode, Spiritualized, Liars).
