Split between NYC and Boston, Handsome Ghost is a brand new electro-pop project that was born when songwriter Tim Noyes (presumably on the right in the picture) decided to delete his Tinder account and give the musical dream a serious shot - pictured, the moment when Tim let one of his Tinder dates know about his decision (we would have dropped her for the unfashionable fur anyway). He left the glamour of internet dating for a studio in Vermont and came out with a record. On April 22, after more than a year since the beginning of the creative process, Handsome Ghost's first single, "Blood Stutter" (streaming below) was premiered by Popmatters through a Spotify playlist curated by Noyes, featuring also tracks by some of his favorite artists (we gladly found Deli cover band Lucius and St. Vincent in it). Since then the song (or compilation, or both) went viral, and "Blood Stutter" got 75k plays in just two weeks, which by any standards is an awful lot for a new band.
Check out the melanchonic, futuristic track, and Tim vocoded (or auto-tuned?) vocals below and - if you dig - follow the hype to Cameo's Gallery for the band's first Brooklyn show on 05.09.
