Mortimer Jackson unveils new single ‘Ghosts’, mixed and mastered by Grammy nominated Robert Harder (David Byrne & Brian Eno, Babyshambles). ‘Ghosts’ glows through with an alternative rock meets trip-hop vibe.
An artist that knows the ins and outs of the industry, Mortimer Jackson has gained support from Steve Lamacq at BBC Radio 6 Music, online site New Noise Magazine and BBC Radio Wales.
Mortimer’s vocals feel passionate and soar with a lo-fi agenda, giving it a subtle radio voice tone.
‘Ghosts’ is Mortimer’s second single of the year and it yearns for a new life. Telling the story of, what feels like, a ghost haunting, the track may resonate with mental health sufferers across the world.
Bathed in metaphors that can’t be ignored,
lyrics such as ‘everything slipped away, everything but the noise’ reminds Mortimer of a tough time.
Aspiring to sound like 90s famous grunge sound, the guitars’ modulated chorus effect is reassured via Mortimer’s reverberated vocals.
Beaming through with delays from left, right and centre, the overall arrangement for ‘Ghosts’ is cinematic and pays ode to a songwriter who knows exactly what they’re doing.
A track that weaves through different genres, ‘Ghosts’ is an essential to Mortimer Jackson’s career and may just be his most emotive track to date.
