Rocket & The Ghost – Gold

November 29, 2012

Rocket & The Ghost is an amalgamation of artists from lots of New York City Bands. The members include Lily Claire from Lily & The Parlour Tricks and Brian Kesley from Alex Winston. But Rocket & The Ghost may just be these artists’ best creation yet. Ok, maybe we can’t make that judgment after just one song, but “Gold” is a folk gem. The track is all about the vocals. As demonstrated by the 30 second solo (2:44), Kiyoshi Matsuyama has an astonishing amount of control over his high pitched voice. And when accompanied by Lily Claire’s vocals, the result is nothing short of beautiful. Keep an eye out for a full length from these guys. In the meantime, watch a video of “Gold” being performed in the studio.
