Mooncult – “Ghost Song”


A fervent garage-rock appeal lingers throughout “Ghost Song,” the new track from Brooklyn-based band Mooncult. The first of six singles from the quartet this year, “Ghost Song” is an anthemic thriller with wailing vocal intensity and suavely moody guitar tones.

Fuzzy guitar distortion and pulsing percussion excels into an entrancing vocal lead. “You’ll bring us flowers and leave us alone,” they sing slyly into exuberant guitar intensity. A debonair, late-night energy impresses, propelled by Raven Mystere’s ice-cold vocals, with expressive guitar work from Rajeev Ananda. Tia Cestaro’s drums and Grover Doyle’s bass work provide steady rhythm section accompaniments

The conclusion sends chills with its conversational vocal layers, mingling alongside the chugging rhythm guitar and steady lead line. “Ghost Song” enthralls with its moody, raw rock charisma.

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

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
