Amidst the enveloping embrace of Seattle’s fog and the towering allure of its ancient Douglas firs, a new sound makes its mark. Enter Ghost Fetish. This band harnesses the electric charge of synths and raw passion, crafting sonic tapestries that blend the glistening frequencies of new wave, the pulsing rhythm of synth-pop, and the entrancing depths of old-school goth.
With each beat and melody, they’ve carved a distinctive niche for themselves. As we approach the waning days of 2023, the looming autumn winds herald the release of their forthcoming debut LP, Almost Touching. As a teaser, Ghost Fetish introduces us to “C’Mon,” the album’s brooding and atmospheric third single. The track is a compelling mix of The Sisters of Mercy’s and She Past Away’s gloom-laden fervor, the icy synth precision of Kraftwerk, and the thought-provoking introspection reminiscent of Albert Camus.
Lyrically, “C’mon” is more than just a shadowy darkwave tune; it’s a lament for the soul. It depicts a world on the verge of collapse but also offers hope amidst the chaos and uncertainty. It is a song whose message remains steadfast against the hedonistic decline of our world while searching ever-long for resilience in the midst of existential turmoil.
Listen to “C’Mon” below:
Almost Touching is out on September 28, 2023. Join Ghost Fetish at Seattle’s Sunset Tavern for the album launch, where they’ll be joined by Dining Dead and 2 Libras.
