Recording and releasing an album is an acid test for just about any band, and Ghost of Science have made an art of patience. Forming in 1999 as a quartet based in British Columbia's music-mosaic town, Victoria, they spent three years writing and recording only to change their name, take on a fifth member and start over. 'You derive your inspiration from the groups you love and follow and you shouldn't be afraid to admit that.' Gilles Maillet (singer/guitarist of GOS) Under a new moniker and with a remarkable debut EP in the can, Ghost of Science only now start to live up to the comparisons to the likes of, Jeff Buckley, The Shins, and Radiohead, and bring a welcome honesty and indestructible passion for music to the stage and to their fans. With the new EP, touting a bordering on self-effacing title '[safe]', Ghost of Science enter a rich Canadian independent music community and they are leaving a distinguishable mark of their own. 'There is no one in Canada doing what they are doing...' Tom Landa (The Paperboys) This band's penchant for writing '...like-it-or-not, catchy brooding alt-rock', does not forfeit the group's ability to branch out into an exploration of guitar and synth soundscapes that read out loud the unseen darker side of Coldplay, and let fly the cascading vocals that have local press maintaining 'They sound like the new incarnation of Incubus.'(Rose Dennan - BrandX Media, Victoria, BC). With a Western Canada tour behind them, and another nationwide Tour planned for Spring 2005, GOS haved proved themselves ear-worthy as they fearlessly take audiences to yet another level in Canadian music experience.
