Ghostwood might look like the Klaxons and be signed to Modular, but don’t expect any Technicolor-tinted silliness from this Sydney, Australia-based foursome. Rather, as indicated by their forthcoming, self-titled EP, these boys prefer brooding guitar chords and emotionally distraught lyrics, and sound closer to straightforward indie rock than most acts on Modular. In other words, this will not be another giddy dance party release à la Muscles or New Young Pony Club.

The EP is set for a digital-only release on January 15. Download the single “Red Version” from Modular, and gear up for somber moods and muted color schemes in 2008.
