This release is the first for the band under the Golden Robot umbrella with Taime Downessaying earlier this year “The band and I are over the moon to join the Golden Robot Recordsrock-n-roll family! We are super excited to release some of our badass new tunes globally – we know the label see our vision and supports the band and we feel completely at home here.”
The double A-side single comes just a few months before Faster Pussycat are expected to hit Australian shores with an exclusive Australian tour edition of ‘Like a Ghost’ and ‘Pirate Love’ on coloured translucent blue 7″ vinyl available to purchase at these shows with only limited stock to be made available online.
‘Like a Ghost’ is a track about growing up in the 70’s, listening to the radio and doing what kids do and the memories it brings back. It features Taime’s signature vocals carrying the song through to completion. The production on this track is second to none with blistering guitars and the band in full force.
‘Pirate Love’ a cover of the legend Johnny Thunders stays true to the original with both tracks complimenting each other with strong instrumentals, killer vocals and an edge to them – everything you would expect from a top-shelf Faster Pussycat release.
