I’ve got a thing against bands that have really long song titles. It’s pretentious, it’s annoying and they never follow up with a decent song, you only have to look at Panic! At The Disco for proof of that. I also have a thing against admitting there are exceptions to my rules, but I’m going to bite the sour-tasting bullet of truth and admit it with The Ghost Frequency.
I had heard the band’s name thrown around and read various things about them online but had never delved into their music until a couple of weeks ago when I watched the video to their single, the track you can hear above, Never Before Have I Seen A Man Alive That Looks So Exactly Like A Skeleton.
The soft hand claps of the intro lead into a short wall of noise before the verse kicks in and the song takes shape. It’s a foot stamping track which has one of the most catchy choruses I’ve heard in a good while, a chorus which I’ve annoyed Crossfire HQ members and other friends with non-stop for over a week. The off-kilter breakdown two-thirds of the way through gives a nice change to proceedings before kicking back into the hip shaking vocals.
Put simply, it’s well good blud.
