Brooklyn synth- pop duo Holy Ghost! have released a new song entitled "Teenagers In Heat", and it should come as a surprise to no one that it's a slice of unashamed '80s cheesiness. From the throbbing synth- bass underbelly to the glacial whooshes and church bells that resound around it, it sounds like something halfway between Ariel Pink and a more electronic Pulp. Lyrically the song seems to be about heartbreak, a romance of times past swirled around with feelings of regret, youthfulness and self- destructiveness. "I was as lame as I've possibly ever been" sings Nick Millhiser, before later on saying "It's like when the band broke up, all the fans got choked up, 'cause they knew we'd never happen again."
Holy Ghost!'s second album "Dynamics" is due out on September 10th via James Murphy's DFA label.
