Don't Believe In Ghosts' "The Chase" is an '80s phantasmagoria

Don't Believe In Ghosts' "The Chase" is an '80s phantasmagoria

There’s no shortage of '80s nostalgia present in indie subgenera these days, but few approach the level of full-camp seen in “The Chase,” the newest video by New York alternative pop purveyors Don’t Believe in Ghosts. Betwixt the haze of fog machines, gaussian LED lights, and sequin miniskirts, “The Chase” is a phantasmagoria of cultural ephemera, one that, against the plucky, guitar friendly groove of the band’s music, reads as a celebration of the Reagan years’ frequently criticized/glorified aesthetic. That, paired with frontman Steven Nathan’s bombastic vocal performance (and roller-skate choreography) defines the track as a ridiculous, but fun, showcase of the Don't Believe in Ghost's iconoclastic pop vision. Stream it below, perhaps as a visual amuse-bouche to a John Hughes marathon, and catch them live at the Bowery Electric on August 17th. -Connor Beckett McInerney
