Duo turned four-piece Ghost Lion has released a haunting new track called “Wolves” today. Quietly contemplative without going stale, this lyrical wake-up call comes from a place of care. There’s a nice juxtaposition between the feel-good kind of music we usually associate synths with and the more solemn guitar– it’s not quite the “tropical post-punk” the act self-describes as, but it’s not pure pop either. “Wolves” is off of Ghost Lion’s Dim Echo EP, out November 11th.
Here’s what the band had to say about the new track:
It’s about trying to get through to a loved one who is destroying themselves. It’s about trying to warn someone who doesn’t want a warning. The danger and damage is obvious to you and others but they just don’t see it. This is especially the case with drug addiction which has taken the lives of way too many of our friends. I heard someone say the worst flaws are the ones you can’t see in yourself. That those are where the wolves hide.
