GALLOWS GHOST - EP REVIEW

Gallows Ghost - Arrows EP 
Gallows Ghost - Arrows EP

Release Date: 23rd February 2015

Love at first hearing is a rare thing in any walk of life but this is one of those rare occasions. Gallows Ghost combine elements of Florence + The Machine, Alt J and Rudimental to create music that you want to move to but that also hits you in the thinks and the feels. This new EP from the London based collective (sometimes duo and sometimes full band) starts with the beautifully haunting 'Arrows' that seduces and tempts like a Shakespearean siren on the rocks of a dark and foreboding coast line in some distant land. 'Stealth' has a more jagged edge to it with frosted overtones as the show-stopping voice of Kate Young cuts through the early morning mist like the light of a lighthouse, calling you forth. The EP finishes up with 'The Void' and as the sultry vocal of "You hold me like an enemy" repeats atop beats and stabbing strings you can't help but feel the beauty and style of Gallows Ghost beaming through. There is class, intelligence and a primal feel that makes you want to move your whole body but, more importantly, there is also a really sophisticated tone to the melodies and song writing  that makes these guys top tips for some level of commercial success this year. Watch this space.
