A raucous bunch of self-confessed under-achievers from Perth in Western Australia, SlackRebel have recently shared their undeniable debut single ‘Ghosts’, unleashing a wave of evocative, psychedelic-tinged alt-rock that is sure to impress.
Released only a few days ago, the debut single sees the rag-tag band making their mark in perfect form, cultivating an impressive sound that hits in waves of sweeping, cinematic chords, flowing hooks, and a hybrid rock sound that digs into hazy, genre-bending undercurrents. It’s a track that has enough rock edge to ignite the mainstream, while holding firm to a nuanced funk vibe that will keep it stuck firmly in the public eye for months to come.
Recorded with Andy Lawson at Debaser Studios and mastered by William Bowden, ‘Ghosts’ takes form through a cinematic, melancholy tinged melody that will sweep you away in an instant. Available now on all major streaming platforms, ‘Ghosts’ also comes alongside an official video that pitches scenes of the band performing live against urban spaces and an overlay of nostalgic filters

To help celebrate the release, we’ve made sure to feature the single onour annual Spotify playlist, where it's streaming alongside a host of other impressive bands and artists from the year so far.
