Ghost Car, the London-based international punk quartet, use their platform to rage against political injustices, as their impassioned voices attack patriarchal inequality, homophobia, racism and toxic relationships. Their music is a call to reclaim autonomy and to revolt against the powers that uphold an archaic nationalist system.
Riff-heavy bangers rise in raw intensity as group harmonies build toward garage-rock noise-outs, and frenzied synth drags the sound in a 60’s psych direction. Call-and-response gang vocals permeate their entire set as back-to-back choruses keep energy levels at maximum, boasting huge glam guitars and caustic drums of pure fury.
Inspired by personal politics, strong women in history, feminists and members of the LGBTQ+ community, Ghost Car practice what they preach, and aim to spread their mantra of inclusivity and equal rights as loud as possible.
They aim to utilise their diversity to explore different writing styles, while expressing themes of openness and empowerment. They’ve been championed by the likes of Mickey Bradley (Undertones), Skin and Du Blonde, and are deeply inspired by the late Lyndell Mansfield. They’ve also grown as performers supporting the likes of Shonen Knife, Amyl and The Sniffers and Beth Ditto, while remaining a London headline mainstay. Press and radio support has come from the likes of 6Music, Radio X, DIY, Dork, Loud & Quiet, Vive Le Rock and more.
