Daylight Ghosts is an acoustic dark folk duo comprised of singer/songwriter Adam Dawe (Lunar Seasons, Novus Wild) and composer/guitarist Karl O’Shea (Balloons Kill Babies, inovo, Sarah Stockholm, Ghostwoods). The band was formed in 2019, driven by Karl’s desire to explore a style of songwriting outside of his usual music world which has been largely playing bass in the prog/metal environment. His vision for Daylight Ghosts brings together his love for raw and intimate music with shared influences coming from artists as diverse as Chelsea Wolfe, The Go-Betweens, Swans and Scott Walker. The band is completed by the yearning vocals of Adam Dawe, complimenting the band’s delicate and melancholic compositions.
Daylight Ghosts released the first taste of their music in March 2020 with live performances of Hook, Line and Golden Hour recorded at Karl’s house. First official single Delirium’s Refrain was released May 29th 2020.
