Spooky Mansion: "The One Who Was a Real Jerk"

I found myself singing along to the chorus the very first time I listened to Spooky Mansion's “Real Jerk," the new single from the Bay Area transplants who have found asylum in L.A. For the video's release, the soulful garage-rock five-piece partnered with French artist Bleu Garou, pairing intricate and comical cartoons with a story of misplaced feelings in a world filled with irrational choices. “Misunderstood/ What we meant when we said taking a break, I thought we could be free,” vocalist Grayson Converse sings, which sounds like a sentence taken straight from the Friends episode “The One Where Ross And Rachel Take A Break."

Spooky Mansion releases their debut album, That’s Me! on October 28th, so stay tuned. Kayla Hay


Spooky Mansion bring new "Surf-Hop" sound to Golden Bull 08.23

San Fransisco outfit Spooky Mansion will be playing a hometown show this summer at Golden Bull on August 23rd. The band’s most recent material came out this year with a surprisng stylistic change; The previousl;y self-described surf rock band brought a whole different flavor of chill, hip-hop oriented beats and instrumentation on their new EP, I'm the Moon, You're the Wave (so plz change w/ me). With listed influences like Modest Mouse and Pixies, this project contrarily resembles (at least to our ears) the fellow Californian band The Neighbourhood, especially on “You’re the Wave”, a subtle and gentle track with dreamy piano chords over a quick, lofi hip-hop beat and harmonizing soft vocals. Check out the band’s latest work below. - Pearse Devlin
