Ghost Note - Review

Hailing from France, this duo puts together a nice post-punk sound with dark and dreamy atmospheres with a moving, dance-friendly beat. img Only existing since 2007, the band has put out a couple of EPs and played live for various local venues including opening for the likes of Clan of Xymox. 2013 marks the release of their debut album on Kalinkaland Records and the first introduction of this band to the pages of Gothic Paradise. With this release we are presented with a simple digipack wiht the music spanning eleven somber, yet moving pieces.

Overall, the music on this album is excellent. The mix of all the coldwave and post-punk sounds we enjoy from the minimal electronics to the shimmering guitars and dance-friendly beats creating the excellent, dreamy atmosphere for the haunting vocals. In just the music itself, I think fans of related genres can enjoy this album. Unfortunately I think the vocal style is lacking, somewhat unintelligible, and makes it so that many of the pieces become a bit monotonous and homogenous. With gothic / industrial related genres this isn't a huge sticking point for me or many fans since we listen to bands singing in a wide range of languages from German, Spanish, Italian and French, and industrial music often being distorted beyond understanding, yet with this style it just seems the vocals don't match the excellent music, so while I still really enjoy this album and band, just feel it's a bit lacking.

There are definitely some favorites that stand out on this album including the driving piece "Voices". This fat-paced track is really beautiful and haunting with solid bass, subtle guitars and the inclusion of piano that adds a really nice accent to it all. The following piece is definitely a masterpiece on the album, and is coincidentally the only piece featuring female vocals, something that many of the other tracks could use. There are no lyrics, just mesmerizing "oohs" and "aahhhs" as another mystical element and instrument amongst the excellent guitar, haunting beat and minimalistic ambient electronics. I think if the female vocalist on this piece were to take more of a prominent role in the vocals, this could possibly be a much higher rated album. As we go through more tracks, the somber moods across moving rhythms continues with "Mondays" becoming another favorite piece. A lot of the 80's new wave styles come out on this piece, the solid beat behind the heavy bass forming a prominent role and the vocals come out a bit clearer though still in that soft and tepid style.

The album moves on in much the same way across the remaining selections. "Lost Days" becomes the finale to the album which also features some female backing vocals for a nice touch to wind down the album. Again I think this is a great work just for the music itself, the compositions and performance is great, the listener will have to decide if the vocals make a difference or not beyond that. Excellent work!

Rating: 3.5/5
