Track Of The Day: Sister Ghost – ‘Season Of The Witch’

Previous winners of ‘Best Live Act’ at Northern Ireland’s Music Prize, and having previously wowed us with their contribution to The Fight Is Not Over – a live EP capturing the protest nature of many of Belfast’s bands, and addressing the need to continue pushing for more inclusive spaces – Sister Ghost last week shared a special Halloween Compilation EP, The Samhain Mixtape. Featuring covers from Shannon and Maeve, as well as special spooky tunes from a number of their favourite bands (including Party Fears, Alumna, Mom Fiend), it’s a perfect selection of seaonal treats!

Taken from the EP, Sister Ghost’s rendition of Donovan’s ‘Season Of the Witch’ provides the perfect Autumn soundtrack. As dark throbbing bass lines and jangling hooks create a playful sense of doom, it’s propelled by impassioned vocals and a seething energy, adding an underlying gritty power to the catchy spirit of the original.  

 

You can buy the The Samhain Mixtape for the suggested donation of £6.66 or Pay What You Can over on Sister Ghost’s Bandcamp. All proceeds will be going to Girls Rock School NI, the local Girls Rock chapter founded by Shannon from Sister Ghost. The organisation have been working online with young women and non-binary young people during lockdown to reduce isolation, create community and make music together.
