ghostigital_einarorn.jpgGhostigital purveyors of quality silence, preaching the gospel of the thundering sparkles. Its members Einar Örn and Curver do not call everything their grandmother. With electric tongues and elastic words they emit sounds not unfamiliar to pouring cereals onto milk in a bowl.

They have recorded two albums, Ghostigital and In Cod We Trust and just relesed Radium with Finnbogi Pétursson. Currently they are recording their 3rd album in Reykjavik and New York with guests Alan Vega and King Buzzo.
