About United Ghosts

A moody, melodic alt-rock duo from Los Angeles, United Ghosts take cues from dark-hued electro-pop, shoegaze, and psychedelia. Led by co-vocalists Sha Sabi and Axel Steuerwald, the band garnered international attention with their self-released 2013 debut, later signing with Cleopatra Records for their 2018 follow-up.

Formed in 2011 as a home studio project between Sabi and Steuerwald, United Ghosts issued the pulsing Krautrock-influenced "Holes Into the Night" 7" single that same year, inaugurating both the band and their Tambourine Girl imprint. Their self-titled full-length debut arrived in March 2013, expanding on the band's mix of murky shoegaze and shadowy electro-pop and earning praise both at home and in the U.K. where it was distributed by Cargo Records. A follow-up single, "Sparks from a Cold Star" appeared later that year, followed in 2015 by the EP Dear Electric Sun, which saw the duo rely increasingly on a more synth-based sound. Working with co-producer Mark Rains (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Death Valley Girls), Sabi and Steuerwald recorded their sophomore full-length, Saturn Days, which was released in August 2018 on the Cleopatra label.
