Ghostly Kisses return with hypnotic new single ‘Crimson’

Laced with significance and power, Dream-pop sensation Ghostly Kisses have shared their latest hypnotic release, ‘Crimson’ in the lead up to their highly anticipated album, Darkroom, set for release on May 17. Coming after the ethereal anthem ‘Keep It Real’, and the announcement of their forthcoming headline tour across the UK, EU, and North America, Ghostly Kisses unfasten a compelling single layered with substance.

Well-known for their enchanting slices of heaven, Ghostly Kisses called upon celebrated producer Oli Bayton (reputable for his work alongside Rachel Chinouriri, Olivia Dean, Barry Can’t Swim, and Yuné Pinku) for another unblemished display of other-worldly art. With Margaux Sauvé’s captivating vocals sitting at the forefront of the release, ‘Crimson’ delves into themes of individual rights and freedom, a message which holds momentous weight in today’s world. Held together with a percussive dreamscape speckled with orchestral elements, we are greeted with further glimpses of the upcoming album.

When asked about the inspiration behind the song, Margaux Sauvé, lead vocalist of Ghostly Kisses explained, ”’Crimson’ holds a special place for us within Darkroom, primarily due to the emotional depth of the themes it explores. Through the Box of Secrets, we received numerous revealing confessions of homosexuality, and the challenges individuals face in expressing or living their love due to familial or societal constraints. Crimson aims to be a broader reflection and claim on individual rights and freedom, also echoing events such as the tragic death of Mahsa Amini and the Iranian protest movement for women’s freedom.”
