Perfectly executed electronic dance that sweeps the band from soundscape to main stage.
It wasn’t that long ago that we were praising the instrumental atmosphere of Adult Bodies‘ last track Drones. So, naturally, the band have come back with latest single Ghosting, featuring vocal work from Beca. As you can imagine, it’s hugely different to the last one.
That’s not a bad thing. The risk that could have come from Drones was that it established the band as being able to create a splendid soundscape, but it didn’t say much for their pop appeal. In that sense, Ghosting is the perfect follow up.
The vocals are spot on at every point along the way, they don’t feel awkwardly cobbled together or out of place. And the instrumentation is flawless, with enough saw-waves and bass drops to really paint Adult Bodies as artists engrained perfectly into the mainstream.
It’s less dour and a lot more upbeat and engulfing than Drones and it sets the bar high going forward. But with a track like this coming out of nowhere, I have faith they will deliver again.
