Ghost Twin is a dark synthpop duo from Winnipeg, Canada that combine roaring synthlines, dirty pulsing bass, dreamy guitar, and a haunting vocal dichotomy where Baroque meets Industrial, with live video percussion that feeds cinema through a cut-up technique imbued with occult aesthetics. Their audio/visual performance creates a full sensory evocative narrative of shadowy haunted rooms occupied by astral phantasms and electronic voices from beyond the aether.
Their debut album "Plastic Heart" produced by Maya Postepski (Austra, Tr/st, Princess Century) was released on Artoffact (International) and Head in the Sand (Canada) in May 2017.
“With phantasmal lyrics, pensive guitar, and pulsing synths, Ghost Twin’s sound stems from styles of industrial and baroque. Think of the reanimated corpse of composer George Frideric Handel performing in a dimly lit German goth club during the ‘80s.” - Vue Weekly
“Windblown Kate Bush theatrics set to a Pretty Hate Machine-era Nine Inch Nails stomp… dark-’n’-doomy synth-pop dredged up from the same chilly catacombs from whence the likes of the Neon Judgement, Cabaret Voltaire, Skinny Puppy and Trent Reznor once lurched.” - The Toronto Star
