Eighteen Hundreds is a 5-piece Ghost Surf band from Fresno, California. The band has been part of the growing local music scene since 2016.

Their sound blends the poppy west coast surf of the 1960s, with a washed out soundscape full of reverb and ghostly trails. Each song is crafted by the group to tell stories about the paranormal. The band especially enjoys crafting stories from an era where Spiritualism existed much more intimately in our collective consciousness.

Each member of the band brings their own influences to the creative table, but fans of Fleetwood Mac, Deerhunter, MGMT, Beach Fossils, Real Estate, and Beach Boys will find familiarity in Eighteen Hundreds.

Members in the band have played (and continue to play) with Fierce Creatures, Omar Rodríguez-López, Fatty Cakes and the Puff Pastries, and Light Thieves. They have been fortunate enough to share the stage with Tropa Magica, Covet, Weathers, Dentist, and continue to support touring bands on the west coast.

Eighteen Hundreds released their Summer EP titled ‘Sun Cults’ (June 21st, 2018) and followed up with a Winter EP titled ‘Moon Cults’ (December 21st, 2018). The band plans on combining both EPs into a full length to be released with two additional singles sometime in 2019… Aligning with the season’s respective solstices and equinoxes.
