Minneapolis quartet Graveyard Club share a love of nostalgia — as well as for Ray Bradbury's sci-fi stories and Ryan Gosling's band Dead Man's Bones. Graveyard Club blend the lilting vocals of '50s crooners with '80s synth pop, adding a sunny touch to New Wave's melancholy. In June, the band released their third full-length album, Goodnight Paradise, and visited The Current studio to talk with Andrea Swensson about collaborating with producer Andy Thompson to write personal songs inspired by "weird haunted oldies."
