“Past Selves (ft. Zola Jesus)” by Former Ghosts // Former Ghosts / Funeral Advantage Split (Out 4.14.15 via Native Sound)
It’s been a good while since Former Ghosts released any of their haunting, synth based experimentations, and now that we’ve got a new track from the indie supergroup, it comes with sad news that it is one of their last. The band is calling it quits following the release of two songs (”Past Selves” and one more), but luckily, the new single is a grade-A stunner. For those unfamiliar with the band, it features frontman Freddy Ruppert, Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu), Nika Roza Danilova (Zola Jesus), and Yasmine Kittles (Tearist). The collective creates experimental soundscapes that range from gentle, beautiful, haunted lullabies, to industrial-tinged synth pop freak outs. “Past Selves” lands somewhere between, in the best possible way. Check it out. Highly recommended!
