Ghost Against Ghost, the project headed up by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Christopher Bono, alongside ex-The Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen, will be releasing Still Love on April 14 via Our Silent Canvas. Today, we're premiering the track "Resume" from the album, which sounds like a very in-your-face version of modern Ulver, backed by tons of Stranger Things-esque keyboards.
What I'm getting at is that the song is exceptionally killer, and you really, really ought to check this out.
Christopher Bono was dealing with a traumatizing family tragedy during the writing of this album, and he channeled that energy into the music. As the official release for the song explains it:
While in the midst of completing the yet unfinished Ghost Against Ghost concept album, ‘Oia’, front man Christopher Bono was unexpectedly struck by a psychologically disorienting family tragedy in the spring of 2014 forcing him back into the writing studio to process this new trauma through music. Over the following months, Bono reflected on the confusion and internal conflict that resulted when the life he knew was ripped apart by disturbing revelations of a shocking betrayal and a Pandora’s Box of dark, misaligned secrets. To dig further into the heart of the experience, he based the lyrical point of view from that of the female victim, his Mother.
If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the new album on Bandcamp.
The band recently debuted a short film for the track "Checkpoint Charlie," which can be seen below.
