Halloween is quickly approaching, so I figured there really is no better time than now to introduce you to the spooky, haunting, creepy band that is Dead Man’s Bones. This two dude band’s front man is none other than Ryan Gosling. Yes, the actor who stars in such films as The Notebook, Lars and the Real Girl, and Half Nelson . I got their demo about a year or so ago, and was told that Ryan was more serious about this band than about his acting. Gosling, and his best friend, Zach Shields, have created a sound that is very reminiscent of the “Monster Mash”…and The Arcade Fire. Strange combination, but if you take a listen to the track below, you’ll get it. Most of their tracks feature a Children’s Choir which gives them an even creepier little sound. I like them, and I think you might too. Happy Halloween!
Enjoy my favorite track, “Lose Your Soul”:
