Matthew Corrigan’s work as Ghostking is Dead stylistically fuses Irish indie rock with notes of hip-hop and bedroom pop over jazzy chords, carving out his own sonic niche somewhere between Nealo’s INNRSPACE recordings and Villagers’ dabbling with synths, and somewhere uncharted down south.
His music finds itself in the midst of a national cultural moment; between rising house prices, rising sea levels, rising anxieties, tumultuous cultural tides.
As a founding member of Cork’s Hausu, a fully-independent artists collective that writes, records, releases, mixes, masters, distributes and promotes music, Corrigan released Fever Dreaming in February 2020, as well as two other EPs as Ghostking is Dead; Sweet Boy saw his first strides into his current form, a home-spun release that launched the collective and broadened his horizons beyond Cork. This Is Doubt saw him tackle his anxieties head-on, while inviting new sounds, weaving hip-hop beats and spoken word passages into his fabric.
In 2018 he released his EP This is Doubt to acclaim, being named one of the top Irish acts to watch in 2019 by Nialler9 and being picked up by Anthony Fantano of The Needle Drop, compared to King Krule and Destroyer. In his return, he lends a new insight into a young man with a new outlook.
