Ghost Fan Club Show Their Shoulders

 

Tyler Costolo returns to his Ghost Fan Club project with an aching self-titled EP for Knifepunch Records. Set to be released on July 5, the haunting ‘Shoulders’ single launches today.

 

Florida’s Tyler Costolo first started making music in 2017 under his own name. After a few haphazard folk tracks, he adopted the moniker Two Meters. After two bedroom pop EP's, he began to experiment with heavier and more dissonant sounds for labels like Very Jazzed and Knifepunch Records.

Seeking an outlet to release material on the softer side, he debuted the Ghost Fan Club project in 2020. He released a handful of singles (including ‘Speak to Me’ which became a minor TikTok hit), and the Goodbye World, Hello Ghosts EP in 2021. Costolo then found himself in flux both personally and creatively, as he made his sonically harsh metal-inspired return to the Two Meters name in 2022, while slowly working on this upcoming self-titled Ghost Fan Club return EP.

While the July 5 release sees him return to his slowcore and bedroom pop influences, Ghost Fan Club has a new edge and greater urgency (thanks in part to the recruitment of drummer Tom Morris) as he tackles subjects like depression, grief, instability, and lost time.

‘Ghost Fan Club’ will be released via “gay working-class trans label” Knifepunch Records on July 5.

 

M. Vaughan Returns With Tire Swing

 

M. Vaughan announces his return with ‘Tire Swing’, the gorgeous lead single from June 14th’s Keep in Touch EP. The single offers the first taste of a record that sees the acclaimed Portugal-via-New York producer moving away from the club and towards the emotional indie rock of his roots with a sound for fans of Mount Kimbie and Blood Orange.

 M. Vaughan grew up playing in indie rock bands before spending a decade crafting electronic music, with his productions on labels like Freerange, Monologues, and his own Super Tuff imprint earning praise from top publications and DJs alike. ‘Tire Swing’ was written during his time in Berlin. Welling up from feelings of disconnection, its soaring vocals, glistening piano, and rhythmic intensity hint at a new sense of excitement and musical self-discovery.
