Artsick hail from the Bay Area and are considered indie pop, but their latest single is well worth a listen even if that label doesn't appeal to you. "Ghost of Myself" is pop, sure, but it's hardly top 40 pop. Instead "Ghost of Myself" is closer to the pop of an artist like Bis. It's hyper fast paced and sugary as it could possibly be with impossibly jangly guitars, but it also has more of a punk edge than you would expect from something labelled pop. It's a great sound that plays in the worlds of pop, punk, and indie rock without committing fully to any of those.
You can watch the video for "Ghost of Myself" below. Fingers Crossed is due out January 21 on Slumberland Records. You can pre-order/pre-save a copy here. For more on Artsick, check out the band's Twitter and Instagram.
