Winnipeg-based industrial synthpop duo, Ghost Twin premiere their new video for “Plastic Heart,” which features a goth gym replete cult-like imagery, black attire, and Merlot, via Ghettoblaster today. “Plastic Heart” is the second single and title track from Ghost Twin’s upcoming debut LP out May 19. The album was produced by Maya Postepski (Princess Century, Austra, TR/ST) and was engineered and co-produced by Michael Falk, who will release it via his label, Head In The Sand (Canada). Artoffact Records and Storming the Base will release the record to the rest of the world. Pre-orders are available at https://ghosttwin.bandcamp.com.
The band is comprised husband-wife duo of Jaimz and Karen Asmundson, who first collaborated together on a short film called Goths! On the Bus! that screened at Cannes, among other international film fests. This gave them the idea for Ghost Twin, an industrial project with both percussion and imagery drawn from film samples. Karen and Jaimz offer a compelling and provocative dynamic that translates both in their music and the visual elements they seamlessly weave into their live performances. Since the release of their EP, Here We Are In The Night, Ghost Twin have performed at major festivals such as Pop! Montreal, Terminus, NXNE, and Breakout West.
They’ve also released a stunning new lyric video for Plastic Heart’s first single “Saturn Swallows the Sun” (watch) ahead of their Canadian tour in support of the new record.
