Here we have it! Just a few short months after the ace ‘Stuck in the Mud’ single came out on NYC label GREENWAY RECORDS, Ghost Car are returning with another 45 coming out on Bristol psychedelic overlords STOLEN BODY!
Following hot from the heels of the last single we see Clara, Laura, Maria and Maeve speeding off and crashing through some rickety old garage rock barriers once again in their flash new GHOST CAR with ‘Woman in the Shadows’. A lone screeching guitar cased in fuzz tones cracks this vinyl open like a starter pistol at a night time 100m dash, building up to what sounds like a Stooges style protopunk workout that makes one mighty fine pedestal for some mighty fine screams and shouts about the ladies in rock and roll and the arts.
Laura, who despite being behind the kit makes sure the band always charges forward deals us a little more info on this number:
Woman In The Shadows was the beginning of the band. It was probably the first or the second song we wrote and we were inspired by all the incredible female artists that have lived throughout history hidden under a big shadow of unrecognition. This song is also one of our favourites because it gives us a lot of strength every time we play it.
As if the earlier cuts from them sounded this good already! We’re stoked this track is seeing the light of day and the cool darkness of a 45 single, if your needle still has life in it from spinning their last single to near death then you’ll be sure to finish it off with this track.
