Love Ghost’s The Scarlet Letter is a song of such haunting beauty it leaves you achingly mesmerized. Taken from their newly released debut LP Lobotomy, it sits like an emotional landmine between the controlled rage of opener Girl Pusher, and the punch in the face of Parasitical Identity…It is powerful, it is breathtaking, and by the song’s end we are witnessing the musical shattering of a mind; a consciousness that, filled with frustration and no escape, implodes upon itself in anger and confusion…Love Ghost’s musical maturity and their raw, articulated honesty goes to show why they are such an important band in today’s climate of denial. Read full article at Anti-Heroin Chic

Teenage rock band Love Ghost has succeeded in creating a unique visual for their latest single ‘Parasitical Identity’. The haunting video features stunningly dark stop-animation from Dave Long. The soundtrack to this poignant portrayal of psychosis features the band’s signature mix of heavy rock coupled with grunge and garage rock elements. Bell’s poetic vocals are set against clashing guitars and driving drums with melancholy dripped viola riffs draping the evocative soundscape. Read full article at Spill Magazine

That contrast begins on the arrangement level, where Mya Greene’s viola weaves depth and nuance into Finn Bell’s crushing grunge guitar and Ryan Stevens’ bass. Between Samson Young’s deliberate drums and a seemingly aimless melody, “Nowhere” captures an essential paradox of the teenage experience: the feeling of having no specific destination, and the imperative to get there yesterday. The video, directed by Dan Bell, harnesses the same duality. Pairing dramatic rooftop performance footage with Lena Bishop’s colorful animated sequences, it’s the visual equivalent of the track’s Pixies-style dynamics. Love Ghost are the picture of a promising teenage band. Here’s hoping the path to ‘Nowhere’ brings them back around for more. Read full article at The All Scene Eye

On March 26, California-based alternative rock band Love Ghost released an enthralling new single entitled ‘Scarlet Letter.’ Sonically, the track combines the muddy guitars of Alice in Chains with Kurt Cobain’s iconic yelp and some compelling strings that are reminiscent of Darling Violetta. Lyrically, the song weaves a harrowing tale of captivity and suffering that was inspired by violist Mya Green’s experience being misdiagnosed with autism as a child. Taken together, those two elements make ‘Scarlet Letter’ one of the most impactful alt-rock songs of 2018. Read full article at AXS

It is a moody, mature sounding track, one where Bell’s voice matches perfectly with a thick mix of heavy instrumentation – picture a young Alice in Chains. When asked about the idea behind the new single, Bell stated, “‘Dead Silence’ is a song about isolation, it’s about feeling alone whilst walking on a crowded street.” A feeling many can relate to, especially in a time where people are more disconnected than connected thanks to the social media age, “Dead Silence” is a strong new offering. With new music brewing day after day, the future looks bright for Love Ghost. Read full article at Cryptic Rock
