Daylight Ghosts and STAN at Banshees
Daylight Ghosts are bringing brand new music and songs from their debut album Urban Umbra to Banshees Bar to showcase their ever-evolving blend of folk, indie, post-punk and electronic styles. They’ll be joined by queer alternative three-piece Stan.
Stan is a three piece alternative blues/folk/rock outfit from the greater Brisbane area. Their songs detail mornings reckoning with the heavy night before, fraught relationships with self and others, and looking for that elusive moment of serenity in the present. Their debut single ‘Pity’ was released in 2021 to a growing audience fond of their honest lyrics and straightforward musicianship.
Daylight Ghosts are an indie/electro/dark-folk group from Meanjin/Brisbane. The band was formed by musician/composer Karl O’Shea out of a desire to explore songwriting outside of his usual prog/metal background. After a lengthy search for a like minded collaborator, Karl found a kindred spirit in singer/songwriter Adam Dawe and the group was formed.
Daylight Ghosts’ mission statement has always been as follows – folk songs filtered through shifting combinations of indie, goth, post-punk and electronic music styles. In simple terms – two moody metalheads creating folk music with their own idiosyncratic spin. The duo’s love of intimate, torchlit music is combined with their “heavier” sensibilities to create a sound that is both delicate and melancholic with an atmospheric, cinematic flair.
