Team Ghost - 'Rituals'

They may never outshine M83 but ‘Rituals’ at least establishes Team Ghost in their own right

When a musician leaves a band, they must think they have a good chance of success without those they left behind. Take a moment, then, to consider Nicolas Fromageau, who quit French epic-poppers M83 in 2004 to form Team Ghost. Since then, M83 have blown up and Team Ghost, well, haven’t. Still, ‘Rituals’ should edge Fromageau back towards the limelight, with skyscraping choruses (‘Dead Film Star’), shoegaze swirls (‘Fireworks’) and jackhammer riffs (‘Curtains’) all colliding in an epic dreamscape. They may never outshine M83 but ‘Rituals’ at least establishes Team Ghost in their own right.
