I have been a fan of Ghost since I first heard a song called “Ritual” off their debut album Opus Eponymus about four years ago. So naturally, when the chance came to review their new e.p. Popestar came up, I was super excited. New Ghost, I thought, this is gonna be great!
As legend has it, back in 2003, they received a two word email from David Bowie. “Nice Album,” it was the impetus they needed to pursue their rock music dreams. Now, more than a decade later, they’ve released their third full-length album, Conversationalist. “Destroy,” the second single from the album has just been released, with the accompanying video hitting the streets yesterday.
“Destroy” is a stylistic rocker that’s just a blast to listen to. From the first dulcet notes to the rousing finish, the song envelops you and pulls you into a vivid musical journey. The song kicks off with lush, soothing harmonies before building to a crescendo and exploding through the speakers. The music is comfortably reminiscent of in their prime Echo & The Bunnymen – soaring vocals, catchy atmospheric guitars and hard-driving, freight train drums. Yup, it’s pretty damn good, and it’s a rock song that fits wonderfully in 2015.
It’s a polished hit waiting to happen and an infectious song worth a listen or twelve.
