Ghost Love Announce Debut Album, “Mourners Disco”
Montreal trio Ghost Love has announced their debut album, “Mourners Disco”, and shared the title track from the upcoming release.
Formed by lifelong pals and seasoned musicians David Rancourt (vocals) and Antoine Rochette (synths/bass), Ghost Love’s catalyst was a desire to hit the reset button and craft a sound that would be all their own. They found the missing piece in their puzzle of ethereal electronics care of Justin Metcalfe (guitar), scouted via a very unpredictable “Craigslist musician wanted” experiment. Upon meeting the like-minded instrumentalist, who was equally galvanized by 80s synth-pop and lush, spacey guitars, the newly minted trio immediately set out to establish Ghost Love’s tension-laden sound.
With their decadent melodies and feverish dark-pop atmospherics, Montreal three-piece Ghost Love create brooding moments of sonic beauty. Talking about the title track “Mourners Disco,” Rancourt says, “The song deals with the pain of loss and grief after my mother passed away but also the desire to transcend the pain and to keep dancing and celebrating her life through it. She supported me when I came out as queer and showed me to navigate difficult times in my life so really the song is a tribute to her strength and guidance. It also speaks to the desire to sometimes hold on to the pain or grief as it is the only feeling that sometimes reminds us of the person that we have lost.”
The single was self-produced by Ghost Love in Montreal, and mixed and mastered by Pascal Shefteshy (Arcade Fire, Patrick Watson). The music video for “Mourners Disco” was directed by Aidan McMahon and due out on February 17th.
