Ghost Beach caught my attention on Twitter this morning when they said they may have a treat for us today. Waiting is so hard but they delivered on their promise with a cover of John Mayer‘s “Vultures.” Giving the song an analog synth makeover, their tropical-pop 80s sound is an unexpected but incredibly well-executed surprise from one of my favorite new bands of 2012. Also, this is just the kind of song motivation you need to work out a little extra hard after eating too many of these this month.  (If you haven’t tried those yet, you’re welcome. They are life-changing).

Anyway, thank you for this Ghost Beach. And while I’m at it, thank you for one of my favorite EPs this year. Stream below and you can download the song for free here.
