Hailing from Los Angeles, California, emo garage rock band Love ghost fuses 90s grunge and alternative rock to create their own modern sound. Last week, the band released a new single entitled “Friday Afternoon”. The track was inspired by Smashing Pumpkins and “aims to reflect the importance of standing up for oneself especially during a time of hardship in teenage years.”
The band was formed by 15-year-old frontman Finn Bell who demonstrates a maturity beyond his years with his soulful lyrics and arrangements. Despite the band all being teenagers, their raw musical skill creates a nostalgic triumph of distorted guitar melodies, heavy drums and emotionally stimulated lyrics. Love Ghost’s musical composition is inspired by a mix of old universal horror films meshed with iconic grunge artists such as Nirvana and Alice in Chains.
