Ghost Twin is a WCMA-nominated dark synthpop duo from Winnipeg. The band is Karen and Jaimz Asmundson, longtime artistic collaborators and husband-and-wife of 12 years. Jaimz, also an internationally-recognized filmmaker, first worked with Karen on a self-aware dark comedy short film, “Goths! On the Bus!”. The film played at international festivals including Cannes. They then began to develop the concept for Ghost Twin, a new occult dark dance project that could incorporate edited video as both percussion and visuals. Their first EP Here We Are In The Night took their immersive audio/visual show touring across Canada from packed sweaty clubs to acclaimed festivals such as NXNE, Pop Montreal, Breakout West and Terminus. The EP also captured the ears of the Canadian and international indie electronic music scene, including those of Maya Postepski – drummer for Austra and electronic music producer known as Princess Century. Maya produced and contributed live and programmed drums for Ghost Twin’s first full-length album, working alongside co-producer and engineer Michael P Falk. The album, Plastic Heart, will be released on labels Head In The Sand and Artoffact in April 2017.
