'Ghost' is the second single from this five-piece Melodic Hardcore outfit from the Northern Territory, Australia. After releasing 'Dark Shade' about three months ago, the boys have had a sudden surge of popularity and interest. They have really pushed the envelope with their sound, introducing more intricate layers of melodic guitar riffs and drum fills. Vocally Tom is ahead of the game especially in the clean vocals department. It is a huge strength for the band with a greater depth and honesty revealed in their latest tracks.
The music video for 'Ghost' directed by Crystal Arrow Films features a collection of tessellating patterns, mirrored images and silhouettes of the band members against different coloured backgrounds. In terms of narrative, there isn’t really much of a storyline going on but the designs are stunning to look at and helps to engage the listener even more. The band will soon be touring the country in April alongside Ambleside, Polaris and The Plot In You as well as releasing an EP called “Ghosts of Me” on March 30th. Follow them on Spotify
