Love Ghost - 'Mr. Blue'

On the first day of summer, June 21, 2019, BWH Music Group released the sizzling hot summer compilation album, 'That Summer, Vol. 2, by Various Artists.' The album offers 16 songs from internationally acclaimed and award-wining independent artists. Love Ghost's song "Mr. Blue" is one of the phenomenal songs featured on the album.

Love Ghosts states that the inspiration behind "Mr. Blue" came from "dealing with depression and coming out the other side."

A call and response duet between viola and bass made up of catchy short, melodic riffs opens Love Ghost's "Mr. Blue." The intro gives you a glimpse of the artistic and creative composition that is about to unfold. In other words, you will be drawn in and blown away within seconds.

As the song moves forward, the instrumentation develops like an alternative rock tapestry full of colors and threads that combine to make an amazing musical canvas. Intense, instrumental solos break through the mix, interrupting your senses,with shredding solos. Bold musical harmonies do not shy away from a little dissonance to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Vocally, Finnegan Bell nails it. "I say my thoughts are tainted, they are tainted blue I am Mr. Blue, I am Mr. Gloom." Lyrically crafted to perfection for mass appeal, the song has just the right amount of poetry and directness to keep it interesting. "You see the lies through the cables, as I view my life as a fable".

Love Ghosts appeals to the masses with their melodic, hook driven songs while captivating the most discerning musical ears with their advanced composition, musicianship and songwriting skills. Loved by fans, hailed by critics, and worthy of every ounce of praise, Love Ghost is one of the best bands of 2019 and a band to watch.
