Electro-funk duo Ghosthouse premiere new song

Chicago electro-funk duo Ghosthouse have been hitting some stride lately - performing at this year’s North Coast Festival and having one of their songs featured on the Jersey Shore TV series. Their latest EP Fashionably Late draws heavily from 80’s grooves and 70’s funk. Chuck New and Jimmy Con joined Jesse Menendez on Vocalo’s MusicVox to talk about how they met and formed the project, and how their song ended up on Jersey Shore. At the end they premiere a brand new song called “5 2 9.”
