Once of indie-pop darlings The Loft and The Weather Prophets, Pete Astor now fronts something of an indie supergroup on his new album.
Water Tower is taken from the new LP One For The Ghost, a song and a title inspired by a habit. “One evening, when I was enjoying my favourite red wine, I decided to pour an extra glass for people and times past. Soon it became a tradition, the name of a song and then an album: One for the Ghost”.
The rhythm section from The Wave Pictures – Franic Rozycki and Jonny Helm – have been borrowed while long-time collaborator James Hoare continues on guitar. Black Tambourine singer Pam Berry completes an impressive line-up. The Guardian describe Astor as “the master of less is more” which sums it all up nicely.
