Tents – “Ghost Hug”


“Ghost Hug” is a moving rocker from Tents, a band from Portland, Oregon. Ethereal, airy vocal harmonizing leads a mellow initial soundscape, poised to expand with vibrant emotion. The “there is no consolation,” admittance builds into a more rock-forward glow, furthering the track’s steady climactic pull. A twangy guitar rise during this “get up,” vocal encouragement makes for a captivating allure, apparent throughout in both its anthemic rises and quainter peppy bounces.

The band writes: “We had a miscarriage. We were very very sad and we decided to do a writing session as a sort of therapy session. We had no expectations of getting anything out of it, but this song emerged.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2023’ Spotify playlist.
