Arising from the death of Melbourne beat experimentalists The Melodics; Grey Ghost is a one-man journey through time, space and sound. From the natural poetry of Jeremedy’s urban parlance, to the kind of universal rhythms that awaken our inner primate; this is music, however technological, that remains unmistakably and beautifully human.
Debuting with a handful of songs that reiterate a definitive post-rap sound and ideology, Grey Ghost is a collision of the real world and the imagination - where opposing laws of musical physics are defied and then redefined. Futuristic, retro and retro-futuristic all in one; this is rock music you can dance to, mixed with dance music that rocks.
Creativity let off the leash.
Grey Ghost’s social conscience and turn-of-phrase bring depth and reality to a musical realm that can often be fantastical and bordering on the strange. His ability to communicate, however using this unbeaten path, is always crystal clear. There is an essential sense of adventure to Grey Ghost, but it connects.
The personnel enlisted for the debut EP are of a similar ilk... creatives that stand tall in their field. Produced by Matik (Seth Sentry, Pez, Drapht, Bliss n Eso) and Jan Skubiszeweski Illy (Phrase, Jackson Jackson), engineered by Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus) and mixed by Scott Horscroft (The Presets, Dappled Cities) – Grey Ghost has some serious horsepower.
Like the rest of Grey Ghost’s debut EP though, lead single Space Ambassador is more than the sum of all these parts. The creative and technical input behind it has oiled the gears, but the beauty of the song is not in its mechanics.
It’s in its vibe.
Hook-driven and hypnotic, the spine-tingling chorus paints an incredibly telling picture of its creator. This is a man, looking out at the stars, waiting for the time to make his mark.
