‘Ghost Bag & Tine Fetz‘ is the outcome of a long distance correspondence between Netherlands based musician Nick Jongen and Berlin based illustrator / comic artist Tine Fetz. Their new unique project will be released as a gatefold LP accompanied by a 40 page riso printed zine with illustrations and lyrics on June 5th 2018 through Don Giovanni (USA), Adagio830 (Europe), and Subroutine (Benelux), and we’re very pleased to give you their newest song and music video called “Friendly Ghost”!
Ghost Bag & Tine Fetz collaboration has a poetic aura that distances itself from many shoegazin’, dreamy alt artists out there. “Friendly Ghost” serves as the perfect realization of their aesthetic, and their new, carrefully-crafted LP/zine project sets them kind of in a league of their own. Here’s what they had to say about their work:
“What started as the loose concept of “Tine draws, then Nick records” turned into an artistic and personal dialogue that neither of us saw coming. It took two intense months to shape this project, sharing secrets and getting closer along the way. Drawing and recording every free minute we had, ‘Ghost Bag & Tine Fetz’ became the narrative of our fever dream.”
All illustrations were made by Tine in Berlin, Germany and Pafos, Cyprus. All audio was recorded and mixed in Nick’s bedroom in Maastricht, Netherlands, except for the field recording on ‘At The Movies’, which was made at Rockaway Beach, NY, USA. Mastered by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden studio in San Francisco, USA.
