With the release of their brand-new single, ‘Ghost’, from their album ‘Jeanie Is Out’, Von Venn revive the charm of indie rock. Gary Cox serves as the group’s leader and primary songwriter of the interception, which is based primarily in Dublin.
The riveting interlude of ‘Ghost’ immediately catches the focus, and Gary’s easy-to-follow wordplay has a strong impact. It is a song about remembering a loved one who is no longer around, and the poignant narrative might be the group’s most sympathetic and compelling offering to date.
The guitars aviate as the song plays through the speakers, and Gary’s influences from Jeff Buckley and Radiohead are paramount to the composition. The drums have a stadium-filling cadence that is characteristic of the best indie music. A euphoric synth hook shimmers in the background, perfectly matching the guitar riffs. It is one of those productions that jumps out and keeps us on the edge of our seats in anticipation.
There is a sense of letting go inside the song, almost reaching a moment in one’s life where it is time to move on. The layering of vocals in the final segment stays in the mind long after it reaches its conclusion note. Also, the backing vocals, which a female vocalist performs, contribute to the intensity that emanates from the mix.
