Ghost Party – “Lonesome Breath”


Self-described as their “foray into cosmic country psych,” “Lonesome Breath” is a riveting new single from Ghost Party. The Texas-based psych-rock revivalists craft a twangy appeal with harmonious vocal layers and gorgeous pedal steel.

“Lonesome Breath” marks just the band’s second single, and their stylistic appeal is already prevalent. “Patiently waiting,” the vocals start during a particularly catching sequence, where serene vocals and pedal steel meandering combine with beautifully melodic endurance. Playful, wordless vocal enamoring drives into the satisfying finale. The “bring me back,” vocal refrain proves apt, further capturing the track’s simultaneous nostalgia and heartful yearning.

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