The Ghost Ease - RAW
Release Date: September 4, 2015
RAW is simultaneously heavy and ethereal like an amethyst rain cloud. The 10 tracks, recorded and produced by famed Northwest producer Steve Fisk, ebb and flow from softened layers of melody to frenetic shreds of distortion. Matingou’s drumming moves nimbly while Vidal’s bass ensures the album’s swirling moments crash comfortably into the angular grunge freakouts. The dreamy intensity of Marie’s guitar sounds are neatly woven around her voice. Her lilting cadence casts the album’s moods like spells. From the tuneful crusher “PJM” to the swelling of “Gemini Rise” and the majestic piano of “Bye, Love”, RAW embodies its name.
