about

Potato Band is a collective of human and non-human contributors, including Rosie Carr and Natalie Kynigopoulou. They share songs, ideas, resources, tape recorders, synths, guitars, pedals and homemade electronics.


Garden Ghost was completed in August 2020 between London and Margate. The EP is about a person who ritually costumes themselves with garden waste in order to spy on the neighbours. The third track ‘Sticky’ was recorded live at IMT gallery as part of Benedict Drew’s exhibition ‘Trapped in a Sticky Shed with Side Chain Compression’ in November 2019.

Lyrics:

A quiet ending

A soft vanishing act

I took the yellow bungalow

For the best sea view on the cul de sac


Clouds so low

Breathe in out

Rotting waste

Garden ghost


Saw a thief come creeping

A woman turn to stone

Birds come and sit on my head

As you wait for a love who will not return


7 feet tall

Con - ic - al

Like an oast

Garden ghost


The neighbours are all jealous

They never say hello

Hollyhocks are totemic displays

All around my beautiful bungalow


Soon to be

Thirty three

Here’s your host

Garden ghost
