Upcoming heavy rock band from Los Angeles, Love Ghost released a new single, “The Scarlett Letter.”
“The lyrics to this song were inspired by a personal experience which I felt reflected a current trend and deserved social commentary. This experience was the degrading, devastating, and humiliating experience of receiving and living with a misdiagnosis of having autism while growing up, which drastically altered my educational path, as well as the expectations of those closest to me regarding my ability to ultimately acquire independence, and opened the floodgates for lots of stigmatization” reveals Greene.
Having grown up together, the four-piece are able to poignantly express both the hardships and joys of suburban teenage culture within their music. Formed by 16-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.
Love Ghost consists of Finn Bell (Vocals, keys, guitar), Mya Greene (Viola), Ryan Stevens (Bass) and Samson Young (Drums). The four-piece blend heavy rock, garage psych and moody pop for a unique fusion all their own. The music is influenced by the teenagers personal experiences of addiction, mental illness, heartache, love and coming of age.
