…hear me out, GHOST LIGHT Take Some Time
by Walter Price
What if Soccer Mommy and Heart were a prog outfit replete with otherworldly keys in the mix…Perhaps this far-out scenario would sound like the recent single “Take Some Time” from Philadelphia outfit Ghost Light.
A meticulously constructed rock n roll track explained by the band’s Tom Hamilton, “The story is less the fallout as it is the recovery, Sticking with it. Staying the course in the face of adversity, uncomfortable conversations or situations. The path to health and healing is often not the path of least resistance but the path of perseverance and doing the work.”
Clearly, there’s nothing wrong with the plethora of bedroom-produced rock and pop that flourished during the last couple of years. Still, when you get your ears on a single that’s as weighty and conscience as “Take Some Time”, you can feel the achievement of a group of brilliant musicians and songwriters at their best—crafting tactile songs that encourage you to experience something more than a fleeting moment. Highlighted by Raina Mullen’s powerfully airy vocals and the band’s indelible groove, this song is undeniable.
“Take Some Time” is from the forthcoming album “The Healing”, expected on October 22. You stream the single, now at the GTC.
