Los Angeles-based Love Ghost have premiered their new single, “Outer Space,” an echoey and open ode to space that encapsulates the feeling of wanting to run away to escape the rest of the world and be alone. The track will be officially released tomorrow, June 26 but Grimy Goods is giving you a full listen today.
“Outer Space” has a real depth to it, with perfectly timed lyrics, a slow delivery and an eventual crescendo. Released via Love Ghost and produced by Danny Saber (The Rolling Stones, Alice Cooper, the Charlatans, Public Enemy etc.) and tinged in a backdrop of grunge, the song sounds perfectly tuned with just the right melodic atmosphere.
Love Ghost consists of bandmates Finn Bell (lead vocalist, guitar), Ryan Stevens (bass, vocals), Samson Young (drums, vocals), Daniel Alcala (guitar) and Cory Batchler (keyboards). Although the band is fresh out of high school, they’ve been playing together since middle school and have developed a fierce musical bond that resonates in their music.
“When I was younger I would lay on our roof at night and look at the stars, thinking about escaping my problems,” says Finn Bell, the band’s guitarist and lead vocalist. “The vastness of space can humble and inspire you at the same time.”
In addition to their new single, the band recently premiered their single, “I’ll Be Fine” during Mental Health Awareness month and have earned some performing chops — back when live performances were still a thing — selling out their own hometown show at the Resident in L.A. and touring with bigger acts.
