Buzzing guitar riffs, smooth dual vocals, and yearning lyrics combine on ‘Ghost’, the latest single from OHMME. The track is lifted from the band’s upcoming album, Fantasize Your Ghost, set for release on 5th June via Joyful Noise Recordings.
Formed of Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart; Chicago-based OHMME blend driving beats and brooding, distorted guitars to create their deceptively simple, catchy songs. On ‘Ghosts’, the pair meander through snaking riffs and restless lyrics to relieve the feeling of being stood still. This need to travel and keep on the move influenced their upcoming album Fantasize Your Ghost, which is referenced in the track’s chorus.
The track is accompanied by a colourful video, directed by Austin Vesely. The band explain how the visuals came to life: “We’d been kicking around the idea of doing something like the ‘Pop Musik’ video by M, but darker. There’s a lot of darkness these days, but it’s important to keep dancing. Austin said, “fancy ghosts?” and “can I press order on these California King satin bed sheets?” and we said “Yes, and YES!””
