Ghost Nation advocated idiosyncratic autonomy in their dark pop/rock amalgam, Insane

Ghost Nation advocated idiosyncratic individuality in their latest addictive anthem, Insane. With a Shinedown-esque rock backbeat and razor-sharp pop hooks that pull you into the emboldening future-ready synthetics of the down-the-rabbit-hole single, it’s a feel-good anthem for every outlier who knows how hard fought for sanctity can be.

Uniqueness may now be celebrated to a certain degree in society but there are still boundaries to keep quirks inside of, Ghost Nation broke every boundary in their liberating anthem, which also borrows a few industrial rock tones. It may be darker and infinitely more twisted with the carnivalesque propensities of the melodies, but insane is the epitome of a radio-ready earworm. If Muse and Imagine Dragons managed to mainstream their sonic signatures, Ghost Nation is easily capable of doing the same.

Ghost Nation has already had its fair share of successes since forming in Stockholm in 2016. Their debut release was a hit worldwide, and their seminal single, Unforgiven, reached No.1 in over 20 singles. To date, the single has clocked up 1.4 million streams on Spotify and 3.6 million on YouTube.

Insane was officially released on July 14th; stream it on SoundCloud and Spotify.

Born To Fail: Ghost Nation drops mental health inspired single Help Me

Known best for their unprecedented fusion of modern alternative rock, dark pop, electronic rock, rebel blues and boss beat, Ghost Nation intertwine through a Katrineholm and Stockholm moulded gem of a single called Help Me.

Ghost Nation is a Sweden-based indie pop/rock duo who are an experienced team that lathers our attention with extremely well-constructed anthems.

We are thrilled to share this new music with our fans,” says Micke Berg. “It’s a very personal and meaningful song for us and we hope it resonates with listeners and encourages them to open up about their own struggles.” ~ Ghost Nation

Soaring with much radiant honesty and so much to learn from, Ghost Nation display such bravery in this engaged song which is wrapped with real meaning. Searching for the light deep in that lonely forest, we find a supremely dark song to help unlock all the previous trauma.

Sung with sterling precision and much to be illuminated by, this is a rather lyrically aware song for anyone who needs to know that friends are there to help if needed.

When you feel like you’re sinking, it’s time to get some backup before it’s too late.

Bringing us a vitally important message about mental health that is often swept under the carpet, Ghost Nation show us unrivaled honesty about issues that have plagued the band in the past, as they perform with so much passion on their new song called ‘Black Dogs’.

”The black dog is that constant darkness that follows you and that you can’t get rid of.” – Ghost Nation

You feel the superb vocals that are entrenched into your mind, you hold onto the beat that washes over your body to cleanse away the self-doubt, the lyrics are striking and gives you a true warning.

Black Dogs’ from sensational Swedish duo Ghost Nation, is a message to not look back, as you run from the dark shadows and the barking of the mind, as you find your peace to figure out who you really are in life. Looking behind and getting bitten by the past isn’t helpful at all and leaves you with those deep scars.

Keeping it real: Swedish Pop Rockers Ghost Nation send the rubbish back to sender on ‘Blow My Mind’

The earsplitting start from Stockholm, Sweden Pop-Rock band Ghost Nation on ‘Blow My Mind‘ might just perforate your eager eardrums.

Deafening electric guitar bluster and power screams through the unwavering speakers that feel the pressure mightily as the shake from the pure booming vocals, true story and excellent background that feels like a 5 piece band at least. The exuberant duo stir up a real meal for the soul here and this is such a welcome listen.

The story about being told things that you believe at first but after further inspection, you turn to the lieutenant in your brain and they tell you to call no on this once exciting journey; that has reached the end of the tracks. The energy force field is broken here as they have thrown away the trust that you once had. When someone shows you their true colors, its very hard to forget that moment as you lose all respect for them them, no matter what happened before.

Swedish duo Ghost Nation are quite electric on ‘Blow My Mind‘ as they up the standard of Rock songs that has a Pop sprinkle into the shaker too for us to consume. The quality act have such incredible success before and for a band so young, they are certainly an outfit you want to see do well as you don’t hear class like this too often these days.

A story about how some people feed you nonsense in your ear is so valid and the message to ignore it is so valuable. In a world full of quick messaging and an almost crazy reaction mentality that does nothing to educate our youth. This is a top effort from a band that show such special self-awareness.

Stream this stomp classic via Soundcloud and see the Swedish sizzlers on their IG and FB.
