Patriot Ghosts
Patriot Ghosts
biography

This three-piece alternative rock band from N. Ireland has a distinctive sound that is often anthemic in nature, but with elements of introspection and self-examination. Blending acoustic guitar with the grittier sound of electric guitar, and piano with driving drum beats, Patriot Ghosts deliver a sound that is at once a hugely melodic and rousing call to arms, yet tinged with a certain lingering melancholia.



Their recent singles, testimony to the diversity of their sound, include ‘Give It Away’ and ‘Our Cities Burn’, which are characterised by big, hefty choruses that resonate with the masses, while the more sombre and reflective side of this band is captured in the confines of ‘Dark of Night’. ‘Lights Go Out’ displays a more upbeat side, fuelled by a catchy refrain worthy of any rock stadium; all these elements have earned them plays on several online radio stations and on BBC Introducing.



Gigs in London in Feb 2018 have further paved the road on which this band will continue; The Spice of Life in Soho saw a stripped-back, entirely acoustic version of this trio, complete with grand piano. The Bedford in Balham provided a chance to showcase their four singles while The Fiddler’s Elbow in Camden played host to Patriot Ghosts at their full range. They will play Belfast in March and will return to The Spice of Life in Soho in May to headline a Friday night show.
