He's what the press has been saying about Ghost Wave.

Somewhere between garage rock and the best sounds of ’60s British pop, Kiwi (by way of Auckland) outfit Ghost Wave bangs out jangly tunes made for good company.” – The Fader

Led by singer/guitarist Matthew Paul, the quartet writes songs for a real summer’s summer, one of those idyllic ones you see in faded photos from the 60s with surfboards and oversized sunglasses.” – Pitchfork

These days it’s no easy feat for a band to differentiate itself from the slough of other guitar-pop bands. You need songs and Ghost Wave has plenty.” – Paste

"Their debut full-length is easy and assured, an irresistible first listen that reveals newfound subtleties on repeat plays." – eMusic
