Spirit System is a band from Winston Salem, North Carolina, who call their music “etheralia/darkwave/gaze.” Helmed by Eric Gilstrap (also of Clouder) and Laurie Ruroden, along with drummer Gary Guthrie and (for this session) Gilstrap’s Clouder bandmate Max Goransson, the band takes this hybrid genre seriously, with deep bass and reverb everywhere. Spirit System is definitely tapping into something deep and dark, pulling it to the surface in song form.
Featured song: “100,000 Days”
