It’s some Southern-fried/down home acoustics (By way of New Jersey, of course) which drive “Ghost”, the first single off of Malkasian’s self-titled debut which is set for re-release with bonus tracks through Dead Industry Records in the near future. But in the hear and now (See what I did there?), “Ghost” offers a glimpse into the Malkasian world albeit an unplugged version.
Singer/songwriter Sean Malkasian’s gruff yet impassioned vocals are incomparable while the overall sound of “Ghost” shares roots with Charlie Daniels (Check out those blues-filled leads and the hypnotic picked lines throughout) as much as it does some of the great alt-rock of the ’90’s at times (Think Ed Kowalczyk and Live’s Throwing Copper) making the track instantly likable and familiar.
“Ghost” is available now as a “Name Your Price” single over on Bandcamp (Click the link or below to get yours) and you can stream it via YouTube here.
