[Video] Exit Ghost: “Elston”

Chicago has a very vibrant scene all the way around, one that largely gets misconstrued as wholly hip-hop and nothing else. Local rock band Exit Ghost, noted as a RubyHornet First Glance last month with their song, “Speaker” took some time to detail the process they took in crafting their latest album, Elston. The video is a collaboration by Jack Mayer, Jacob Goodman and the band and details “what it is like to make a video about a band” It was shot from May-August of this year as Exit Ghost rehearsed, wrote and learned from one another during a residency at Chicago’s High Concept Laboratories, working on Elston. Watch below as the band learns to deal with the natural reverb of a brick wall in the cozy, sunny room at HCL in the video below and keep an eye out for Elston, due out in November.
