Turn Up The Volume: Welcome to Ghostlawns‘ symphonic synth paradise where sticky pop melodies foam in a swirling bath of stimulating electronics, ongoing motorik drum beats and twinkling guitars. An overall orchestral sound triggering your senses and all of your limbs. Middle finger to the lockdown, there’s no law against freaking out in your living room and it helps to activate your adrenaline production. And kraut-dance impulses are so much cheaper and more effective than therapy. Hit the floor!
