Editorial Reviews

The Ghost is Dancing began as many bands begin, in a moldy basement
during university. The original seeds were planted when its members were
returning home via Toronto's Spadina Ave. Sweaty and exuberant after a
Hidden Cameras show at the Horseshoe Tavern, they decided that they
wanted to start a band. Somewhere between all their energies rested
dozens and dozens of pop hooks and their first major battle was to find a
way to put it all together.
The first self-titled EP was charming in its do-it-yourself-ness, and
expressed the sheer joy the band felt performing and writing those
songs.The EP received critical acclaim and the band drew immediate
comparisons to Akron Family, which all made perfect sense. Those were
their favorite bands.Soon after theirEP release they signed with Sonic
Unyon Records and began work on their first LP, The Darkest Spark. In the
fall of 2006 they recorded with Dale Morningstar at Gas Station Studios and
in June 2007 they released The Darkest Spark to raving reviews from
NOW, Chart and Spin Magazine and followed with performances on MTV,
CBC and alongside The Hidden Cameras, Rogue Wave and Man Man.
Shortly after their first national tour The Ghost is Dancing shrunk in size.
The economical rigors of touring,rehearsing and living with giant student
debts had taken their toll. Throughout these changes, however, songwriting
had continued and their musicianship had improved. Over the next
year, TGID found themselves invading late-night swimming pools in
Kentucky, barely avoiding head-on collisions in Quebec, and taking off all of
their clothes in the back of a record store in Charlottetown PEI. They would
tour with new songs, new members,craft a tighter, more explosion live act
and finish writing their next record, literally titled Battles On with Chris Stringer(Rush, Ohbijou, Timbre Timbre, The
Coast).
Laden with even bigger pop-hooks than before, but with a go-for-broke attitude and mindfulness towards the craft of
songwriting, Battles On rarely lets up and delivers on the promise of a band which has come into its own. Having
already toured Canada twice in support of the record, the band now has the USA in its sight. Battles on!
