Gianfranco Pescetti – “Be My Ghost”


Thumping rhythms and eerie yet playful synth tones consume throughout “Be My Ghost.” The track is the fifth and final single this year from Gianfranco Pescetti, culminating in an album release this coming January. Writing music from his Maui-based studio, Pescetti has showcased a riveting, atmospheric electronic sound throughout this productive year, featured previously with gems like “The Wake” and “Stopless.”

Its driving synth-pop haunts resembling Yellow Magic Orchestra, “Be My Ghost” ventures into haunting wordless vocal integrations, enamoring amidst the chilly synth work. The twinkling synths and pulsing percussive consistency conjure a vibrant ’80s nostalgia, showing a versatile tonal offering from sleepy contemplation to panting ardency, like after the one-minute turn. Pescetti wraps up a very fruitful 2023 with “Be My Ghost,” whose atmospheric electronic spell persists with consistent enjoyment.

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

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