"3" is the third release by the Ghosts. The songs on this album were carefully crafted during the years 2014-1027. Many of them were written during travels through Asia, while sitting in in waiting halls, hotel rooms and airport lobbies. Voices and field recordings were taken from several holy places in India and Indonesia. When Vinzenz came back from traveling in 2015 he met Andreas Klinger and Lea Eberle. Both joined the band and they completed the album "3" together.

"3" (2017)

Ghosts having breakfast ist das Solo-Projekt des Berliner Musikers Vinzenz van Dyck, der uns mit seinem gleichnamigen Debut-Album ein düster-schönes und zugleich markantes Geisterfrühstück serviert. Folk, Electro-Blues und Psychedelica prägen seine Kompositionen, zwischen Traumwelten und erdigem Rock'n'Roll. Die Poesie eines Dylan oder Cohen beeinflusste ihn dabei genauso wie abstürzende Zeppeline und Horden rezitierender buddhistischer Mönche. Sein Reisefieber bahnt sich den Weg durch die ungeschönte Romantik seiner Songs. Diese erzählen von manch einer sonderbaren Begegnung auf dem Nebengleis des Lebens. Unter praller Sonne, manchmal ziellos umherirrend, aber stets im Vertrauen auf den richtigen Weg. Das geistige Auge wandert so durch Städte, über Berge und Felder. Wir lauschen in tiefer Nacht den Gesängen eines vergessenen Traumes und erwachen morgens mit dem Duft von Kaffee und Toast.

„Bardo“ is the second album from Ghosts Having Breakfast.

In Tibetan „BARDO“ means an intermediate state between death and rebirth. Its traditional German meaning is: the wolf with the battle axe. How fitting for van Dyck's newest album, with its distinctively wild way of expanding on and exploring the sounds from his first album. Like a journey from innocence to experience – and back - „Bardo“ winds its way along the ears passageways, opening up worlds of gloom and realms of hope. Through his music, Vinzenz van Dyck throws all attempts at pigeon-holing or categorizing to the winds and serves us a swinging tableaux of psych-folk, electro and acoustic. He was influenced by a variety of musicians, from Neil Young and Nick Drake to Depeche Mode.
