Two-time Mercury Prize nominee Ghostpoet (aka Obaro
Ejimiwe) follows up 2017’s acclaimed ‘Dark Days +
Canapés’ with a record which couldn’t feel more prescient – a
dystopian snapshot of the universal unease and anxiety we feel
as we enter into this new decade (in lockdown mode!), an
uncertain future distilled across these 10 vital tracks.
The first single ‘Concrete Pony’ is the perfect entry point to the
record – bluesy, gritty and foreboding and accompanied by an
incredible video, with its distinctly Lynchian feel, surreal and
Written, arranged and produced by Ghostpoet, the album
incorporates a myriad of sounds and styles anchored by the altrock
sonics of his last two records and a nod to the likes of
Massive Attack who he provided guest vocals for a couple of
years ago. It also features guest vocals from an eclectic mix of
artists ; Art School Girlfriend, Skinny Girl Diet’s Delilah
Holiday, SaraSara and Katie Dove Dixon.
The artwork is a stunning recreation of the famous gothic
painting ‘The Nightmare’ by Fuseli with Obaro as the stricken
Limited edition clear vinyl LP for indie stores only.
