New Music Critique: GhostE

[email protected]


Seeking: Label, Film/TV
Style: Electro-Pop

N.Y.C.-based electro-pop artist GhostE shows her experience, sonic sophistication and gift for infectious pop hooks on recent recordings, such as “Slow Motion” and “Deep Water,” both of which feature lyrics about troubled relationships, sounding at times akin to the work of Imogen Heap and Enya. These are songs whose melodies and stories are smart and whose production has an equally deft futuristic precision, where even the fingersnaps are alluringly fx’d. “Brick By Brick” is perhaps GhostE’s most tuneful song, a candidate for a hit single. Its message (“fight or flee, which will it be?”) is strong and calls upon the artist to show a winning defiance and resolve.
