SGF - Only Ghost

“Only Ghost” comes to you in three parts.

Part one is a frenetic pop song. Manic vocals plead you to stay grounded and to not despair. Hyperactive drums, bass, and chord stabs underscore this impassioned unrest. Tension and energy build and explode into the quiet ambience of part two.

The wild begging of part one has become reserved regret. Vocal ghosts float above drum machines and synthesizers. Warmth envelopes you. A sudden crescendo leads you to a brick wall of distorted underground dance rhythms. The wall crumbles, revealing part three.

You can only relax for a moment before a thundering drum solo begins, taking you even farther away. Cosmic textures take over as the drums fade, leaving you both satisfied and stunned.
