I’m used to psychological terror on-screen but listening to Love Ghost’s latest single “Dead Bother” was my first time of taking it in aurally.
That all sounds frightfully macabre. But what you’ll actually get when you hit play is an atmospheric, groove-filled feat of Dark Rock complete with lyrics which share reminiscences with Horror Punk pioneers the Misfits. Yet the serpentine dark 80s-inspired rhythms combined with the phantasmally bewitching vocals create a hazy mellow soundscape which allows you to soak up the disconcerting lyricism all too easily. Any fans of Deftones, Type O Negative, Incubus and A Perfect Circle are sure to appreciate Dead Brother as much as we did.
Dead Brother is due to drop on January 24th, 2020. You can pre-save the single and check out the earlier releases from Love Ghost with this Spotify link.
