about

The culmination of several years of dedicatedly probing numerous stylistic avenues, Mouth of Ghosts’ self-titled 2019 debut LP reflects a complex musical journey which offers listeners the opportunity to explore a diverse collection of textures and tones within a single cohesive experience. Where the inaugural EP “When The Sun Sets” exhibits heavy influence of trip-hop/alternative blended acts such as Portishead, “Mouth of Ghosts” reveals the continued layering of new inspirations, surveying heavier rock elements balanced with electronic textures, and a desire to plumb the shadowy depths of moodier tones while retaining strong pop sensibilities.

It is immediately clear from the lead track “The Price” that this is a record that is hard-hitting and cuts right to the heart; truly anthemic and featuring a soaring chorus rich with emotional resonance, it’s the quintessential front and center single, a clear mission statement that sets the tone for everything to come. Following in its considerable wake listeners will discover moments of brooding atmospherics (“Lost”, “Somebody Like You”), sultry playfulness (“Downfall,” “Sudden Lights”), and muscular volume (“See My Face”), all coalescing harmoniously on a dynamically varied canvas. The compositions are accented by orchestral elements and electronic arrangements that deepen their impact, making Mouth of Ghosts an abundant and well-rounded listening experience for those who enjoy artists ranging anywhere from Portishead to Deftones to Chelsea Wolfe to Arcade Fire.



Recommended if you like: Portishead, Radiohead, Arcade Fire.

Track Name: The Price
Swallow me whole
And spit me out
I know
I’m disposable
A little toy
For you to play with
Set me aside
Leave me behind
Because your touch’s
Not worth the price
All I wanted to be
Was someone you’d need
For all eternity
Pull apart my greed
Living deep in me
A flaw I can’t quite supersede
Hold me close
Just for a second more
Fleeting touch
Inside I know
The truth behind your eyes
Though you entice
I must be wise
And so I ask you
I ask you
Leave me behind
It’s not worth the price
It felt a little too right
Those empty promises
Things you would hide
My blind trust blurred my sight
I feel I’m seeing for the first time
Track Name: Somebody Like You
Only time will tell if you've been a liar
Only time will tell if you stole what you craved

As for me I knew I shouldn't have trusted somebody like you
Silly me for loving you
How could I love somebody like you

Only time will tell if I'll be a survivor
I'm still feeling your touch on the back of my neck and it's soft
