Love Ghost has it going on! “Forgive Me” is one of those songs that’s dominant trait is excellence on all fronts: arrangement, production, musicianship and a contagious melody. And Bell’s vocals are just icing on the cake, making it superlative.- The Huffington Post

Love Ghost’s Head-Turning video for “Forgive Me” is an impressive effort that  blends a dream-like plot with convincing performance art… Love Ghost is full of energy and promise with inspired vocals (reminiscent of Curt Cobain) and something unique to this Grunge act: the symphonic Viola playing by member Mya Greene, who adds a touch of sophistication to the madness- Enter the Venture

Best of Emerging Indie Bands- Love Ghost named #17 for 2017- Emerging Indie Bands

Despite the title and groovy animation, “Chimpanzee” seems to be a serious, dark song with an impressive arrangement that flows effortlessly from beginning to end. A few things stand out in this piece, including the use of the viola that works almost like a guitar – highlighting the ebbs and flows of the song; all while the thumping bass-line, deliberate percussion, and snarling, but intelligent vocals complete this alt-rock expedition.- Pancakes and Whiskey

I love these guys.  Straight off the starting line, I love them.  LA teens Love Ghost have drawn influence from the 90s grunge scene and turned it into their own 21st century sound whilst retaining that raw, exciting energy of grunge- Listen with Monger- UK

Los Angeles-based rockers Love Ghost are inspired by '90s grunge, and that translate into their sound and aesthetic. Listening to them, you'd be stunned to learn that they're teenagers. Their new monumental video for "Forgive Me." Clocking in at over 10 minutes, the epic video that starts off with Tarantino-esque vibe before things devolve from there. As for the song, well, this band can play and if they're able to harness the talents demonstrated on this tune, the future is beyond promising for them.  "The video is about a journey one takes to forgive their self, it shows how a relic from your past can have the power to be a nefarious omen in the future," singer Finn Bell says. "We can only run from our pasts for so long, until eventually we greet our self made demons face to face. The liberation in confronting your past, could have the power to make you forgive."- Pure Volume

“LA-based quartet, Love Ghost, takes us wandering in the desert and rocking in grunge fashion at church in their new video “Forgive Me.” The song shrouds us into the abstract soundscape where the distorted melody and semi-cryptic vocals gives us rare, aesthetic chills”- Aupium

"Los Angeles-based alternative rock band Love Ghost have released a music video for their song “Forgive Me” and it’s quite epic…   As many contemporary music videos seem only to be influenced by older music videos, it’s refreshing to see something that looks like it might’ve drawn inspiration from the works of Alejandro Jodorowsky and Andrei Tarkovsky. It’s also heartening to a modern rock song, that has some actual heft and crunch to it. With formative alt-rock records like Nevermind and Siamese Dream now almost 30 years old, now’s the perfect time for a grunge revival."- AXS  

"Love Ghost has released a visually stunning cinematic video for their latest release ‘FORGIVE ME’. LOVE GHOST carry an air of early Nirvana with post grunge attitude and real rock sensibilities."- Drunk on Music

Video of the week- Love Ghost “Forgive Me”-  HD Online UK

"LA-based Love Ghost makes grunge-inspired alt-rock that’s captivatingly deep and delightfully atmospheric… blows listeners out of the water.  The group is reminiscent of Garbage, Smashing Pumpkins & Thirty Seconds To Mars, with pensive existential themes conveyed through powerfully dynamic and perfectly-weaved strings (guitar, viola and bass)… blends in subtle pop-punk & LA-folk elements into their shredding yet subdued sound aesthetic. I have no doubt that Love Ghost will serve LA’s music legacy quite well with this genuine and gracious grunge."- IndieBeat.com

let these cats get a full length under their belt and watch out! they’ll be your new favorite band."– New Noise Journal

"Have you ever wondered what it would be like if your favorite grunge; garage 90’s alternative rock band was after all, one of 2016 most stunning revelations and playing some kind of Led Zeppelin meets Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Velvet Revolver blend? Well it would sound like “Love Ghost” and you would not want to miss it!" - INDIEVOTION

“Back with another intensely beautiful single, here is the exclusive premiere of “Bones”... Piercing your heart as you listen. Melancholic in its nature, you’re still very aware of the fact that this band’s ability to ensnare your emotions is well beyond what their age might suggest. They hold the strength and maturity of a band that has been around for decades, and we can’t wait to see what’s to come.”-  Impose Magazine

"You’ll find yourself comparing them to a host of 90’s bands but while that may be the initial charm that lures you in, their song structure and musical prowess will have you hooked for good.. A beautiful guitar intro turns quickly into some painful lyrics (especially for such a young band) on “Mystery Box” as the production value soars through the roof with distant, eerie guitar work…" musicblendonline.com

“For fans of 90’s Alternative and Grunge Rock, Love Ghost is a band that you must check out. They take influence from bands such as Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins etc and give it a new modern sound that is purely their own. It is beautiful, haunting, atmospheric and incredible all at the same time and couldn’t be recommended enough.”- music nerd reviews (UK)

Friday Afternoon steadily churns with a thickly textured, simmering to roiling rhythm of planing to searing guitar distortion, heavy bass, chugging to dynamic drums, and the weave of sweet viola lines.  Bell sings in a subdued tone on the verses and then exclaims in a yearning register on the smashing chorus sections. - therecordstache.com
