Kestrels
A Ghost History

Halifax trio Kestrels released their second album A Ghost History earlier this year, and it’s every bit the pleaser debut Primary Colours was — that is, if you’re into the sound of punk-turning-into-indie pop caught in transition while bursting at the seams with loud, boisterous shoegaze-inspired guitars. The band cites Creation records and early Merge releases as influences, but it’s likely every listener will find traces of whatever indie/college rock they may have inadvertently stumbled upon from the mid-80s to the early 90s.

Head on over to the band’s Bandcamp site to hear A Ghost History in its entirety.
