A Choir of Ghosts - Oceans (single)
We must first make our way into the wilderness through the deep, dense Scandinavian forest before we come across A Choir of Ghosts. There you can find him singing his energetic, modern and longing folk songs.A Choir of Ghosts' musical foundation is: A solid ground consisting of a reminiscence of Kurt Cobain, covered with the water, the sun and the air of bands like The Tallest Man On Earth and the Hollow Coves, which give you a feeling of various shades of nostalgia. A Choir of Ghosts has had a few singles since 2016 - "Morning Light" currently has over 1.4 million streams on Spotify, and the trend is rising - and released an EP that received international media coverage and carried him across the borders of the Swedish wilderness, among others on extensive tours through Central Europe. With the release of his widely acclaimed debut album “An Ounce of Gold” in April 2020, the Swede by choice was once again able to secure euphoric international press praise. After a spring European tour that was canceled due to Covid-19, “Oceans” is the second musical sign of life from A Choir of Ghosts.
Oceans is about the space that has grown between everyone over the last year. We're all just stood at the dock waiting for the boat to come and take us home, it's just that no one knows when that will come.“ - James Auger
A Choir of Ghosts has built a reputation that once you fall into his web and into his world, you are hooked till the end of your days. The songs are addictive like drugs, you are craving more and more to satisfy your needs. And guess what? he never disappoints. The new single features his trademark guitar fingerpicking and of course, the voice. The stripped back arrangement lets him take you by the hand, make you close your eyes and find yourself in the dreamy world of skilled songwriting and musicianship. There is no doubt about the honesty in the song. This could well could be the start of a sequel to An Ounce of Gold.
"When the moonlight hits the heavens
It’s your time to shine
I don’t know where were going
But I know we’ll be fine"
