Ugly Ghost – “Text Me Back”

Multi-instrumentalist/DIY producer Jake Perreault crafts an intoxicating blend of rock and pop with his project Ugly Ghost. The Providence-based artist impresses significantly with new track “Text Me Back,” touting catchy pop melodies amidst a heavy funk-laden bass line and dazzling guitar work. Overall, the aesthetic reminds fondly of Unknown Mortal Orchestra with a more pop-centric focus. The soaring guitar solo close to the two-minute mark hits hard, generating substantial feels alongside Perreault’s yearning croon. “Text Me Back” is a surefire winner.

“Text Me Back” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2018’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Indie Rock.
