Do you remember how free you were as a child? No worries about anything, enjoying every moment, exploring the world with open heart and eyes. How often do you wish to be so carefree as an adult? Hold those memories close to your heart. This is the message Ghost of the Pine try to share with their current release. As it is often the case, the strings bring certain sadness and sense of nostalgia but the overall feeling you get is to slow down. Stop for a while and think of what you have gone through in life, what you lost and gained, everything is part of the journey you are on. Unfortunately, what's once gone will never come back. The strings and percussion and the powerful lyrics create truly haunting track.
" oh the ghost of your youth child shall haunt your memories"
