The Hatchets – “When the Ghost Throws Off His Chains”


Milwaukee-based band The Hatchets fuse catchy guitar lines and playful organs for a memorable rock sound on “When the Ghost Throws Off His Chains.”

The first single from their upcoming full-length album, the track reminds “there’s no such thing as yesterday,” into a resonating title-touting refrain that delivers a lusher introspection, before traversing back into the rock-friendly bustle. Crunchy guitar distortion arises upon “the horizon,” sequence, ascending with chirpy satiation into a final, impactful title sequence. The Hatchets have us firmly anticipating their upcoming album with this track.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
