Los Angeles’ Love Ghost likes to keep busy. Readers of The Static Dive were first introduced to the emerging indie stars in 2021. They had just released the single “Shine Like Gold“. The song was last April’s entry in a remarkable series of monthly releases that is now entering its fourth year.
The west coast quartet is led by singer/songwriter/guitarist Finnegan Bell. The prolific rocker has created a unique sound that borrows equally from emo, metal, alternative and trap. Since their 2016 debut the band has toured the world and connected with millions of fans.
“Venganza del Fantasma” is the brand new 4-song EP from Love Ghost, released worldwide via all major streaming services on December 9, 2022. The EP is a 4-song collaboration EP by Love Ghost featuring 4 acclaimed Latin artists- Santa RM (Mexico), Conejo (East Los Angeles), Vanity Vercetti (Spain) and Lou Cornego (Spain). As the title suggests, it is built around ghostly and bilingual themes.
“Ghost Town” introduces the set with minor-key emo guitars before power chords and gothic synths drop on a hard trap beat. Bell and Santa RM trade verses, singing and rapping a dark tale in both English and Spanish. “Inferno” follows and dives even deeper into the dark. Hypnotic guitars set the scene as Finnegan and Conejo explore the mind of a psychopath.
“ALI3N” lightens the mood with an upbeat pop/punk rocker. Produced by Love Ghost’s own Little Trauma (Cory Batchler), the song features Spanish Emo singer Vanity Vercetti. The EP closes on “Pick Myself Apart”. Spanish Pop artist Lou Cornago joins the band for dark meditation set to a signature Love Ghost alt/emo/trap vibe.
