Kicking off the new season with a much-welcomed return to their grunge-led roots – Love Ghost take on darkness and defeat with this hard-hitting, deeply emotive new single.
The track is delicate then heavy, projecting its underlying intentions and the wave-like life of a nihilist in everything from the lyrics to the performances to the arrangement.
Love Ghost were already one of the most interesting and memorable bands to emerge in recent years, and this new EP takes things to even greater plains.
Not purely electronic production, but guitars, bass, drums, and plenty of vocal grit. An increasingly passionate outcry in the name of unity & trust.
In short, Beautiful Crime cries out for all of us, and leaves a gaping silent void behind when it comes to an end.
Throwing fans another unexpected curveball, LA’s Love Ghost offer up a personal ode to a country they adore, by covering this renowned Japanese ballad Uewo muite aruko (English title : Sukiyaki).
Effected vocals detail an intimate and somewhat harrowing story-line, laying bare a mid-album Nirvana vibe in many ways – these short phrases, rhyming couplets that kick hard and leave plenty of space for reflection in between.
Brilliantly crafted, poignantly and passionately touching upon the angst and uncertainty of modern life, with impeccable performances from all involved – Let It All Burn is a quickly addictive new rock track, more than worth its weight right now amidst the mainstream contemporary landscape.
Love Ghost are fast becoming one of the most interesting and engaging rock bands to emerge during this re-igniting of the genre. Nothing speaks more in favour of that than this latest single.
Love Ghost are a young band who already seem to have mastered the art of writing a great song. Their latest release, Mr Blue, is one that skillfully fuses addictive riffs, high energy, and superb melodies – resulting in a song that feels fresh yet stylistically rooted in the rock sounds of a simpler time.
Whatever opinions you form after hearing just half of any one of these songs, they’re likely to be blown out of the water within a few minutes of hearing whatever else surrounds it. This album is a work of art for modern grunge & rock in general.
