Tiny Ghosts share new single ‘Grasp Of Me’

Forever kindred spirits, the dream-pop duo Tiny Ghosts anchor melancholic anthems against shimmering layers of synth and guitar. Today, they release their new single ‘Grasp Of Me’.

“Grasp Of Me is a very angry song, based on a true story!” explains Dayan Marquina. “Even the part where someone pulled on my emergency car brakes while I was driving, It scarred me for life to the point where I had to write about it”

“I wrote the primary riffs for ‘Grasp of Me’ back in summer 2020 and, musically, the verse/chorus dichotomy reflected how chaotic my life was at the time,” adds Eric Morgan. “I was in the middle of a 4-month stretch of nightly visits to see my hospitalized, pregnant wife (monoamniotic twins!) while working and solo-parenting our other daughter during the day. Balancing between the extreme anxiety of a high-risk pregnancy and the eery tranquility of both the hospital and COVID isolation was really the unconscious influence that expressed itself in this heavy vs soft pattern throughout the track.

“All the pent-up energy definitely comes out in it being much more of an aggressive song for us. I remember showing this idea to Dayan, and initially, she thought it was maybe too far in that direction for TG — and so we sat on the idea for a bit, and I actually began re-working it for my other band Brigades. But after we started incorprorating more and more of our older emo and post-hardcore influences on songs like ‘LoveLove’ we came back to the idea which matched perfectly with this angsty lyrical idea she had been working on, and ended up turning into this super cathartic song for both of us that we are excited to put out!”
