Goldwoman – “Midwest Ghost”


“Midwest Ghost” is a powerful new track from Goldwoman. The captivating vocal presence and hooky key-laden build remind fondly of Mitski. A piano-forward beginning adorns a resonating “she can’t be you,” vocal refrain, expanding into a melodically flourishing satisfaction thereafter. The “for now I’ll just lay low,” bridge charms with a pulsing, hooky endearment, as the track is capped off by a playful synth. “Midwest Ghost” showcases captivating songwriting and melodic vocal strength from Goldwoman.

The Brooklyn-based artist describes the track as an “indie-pop, piano fueled anthem about lost love.”

“Midwest Ghost” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2021’ Spotify playlist.
