Imagine: if band members can rotate between instrument positions within the band, because every band member can play every instrument, then this must imply a seldom degree of freedom and mutual musical understanding…
something that most bands could only dream of.

Spook The Horses are such a band. Maybe this multi- instrumentalism and virtuosity also explains the vast musical territory that is explored between the band’s 3 albums: while 2011’s debut album Brighter was defined by sweet post-rock crescendos, 2015’s Rainmaker was a much heavier affair, that would appeal to fans of Cult Of Luna or Amen Ra.

People Used To Live Here, in quiet stark contrast to the before mentioned, sees the band turn the distortion knobs way down, to a mildly saturated crunch tone, at most.
“Writing this album gave us the ability to experiment with song ideas we felt weren’t appropriate on our previous albums“, Zach Meech comments.

The band’s most daring effort to date, People Used to Live Here explores the natural and immediate. Written and conceived in relative isolation over several grim Southern Hemisphere winters, Spook The Horses are defining their own sonic trademark with this album: an atmosphere of quiet desolation, raw and real, desperate and unsettling: the post-apocalyptic soundtrack to abandoned places, where people used to live, at one point in time, long ago.
