"With a penchant for catchy hooks and a DIY ethos flowing through our veins, we’re determined to take our music to the next level. Our sights are set on releasing our debut full-length this year, followed by playing as many shows as we can handle.
“Burnt Out” was produced, engineered, and mixed by our singer/guitarist Anton DeLost. Alongside longtime video collaborator Andrew Harris, the duo also directed and edited the track’s accompanying visuals. Shot in Toronto featuring the waterfront, High Park, and a few talented friends of ours, this video is a bittersweet reflection on being in the moment and enjoying the little things in our relationships that we often take for granted.
“The first time I heard First Ghost’s “Burnt Out,” I remember visualizing the lyrics as a story. I saw a kind, old man, reliving nostalgic memories in his senior years while considering what is worth letting go of, and what is worth holding on to.” - Andrew Harris, co-director
Music, film, and photography pose the ability to bring us back to a time, place, and the people that we shared that time with. It’s crucial that we continue to create, share, and enjoy these storytelling tools."
Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.
