For starters: How badass a song title is “Spearherder”?
I guarantee you the song and its new, blood-spattered video from Delo Creative match the furious, guttural tone the name suggests. Tyler Huskerson does his best Explosions in the Sky impression and Sethy McCarroll emotes in an impressive range of groans and grunts.
Also, it’s good to see Blake Studdard (he plays the keys and extra percussion on the right) back and rocking again after his old band, The Neighborhood, provided a spirited Norman Music Festival 4 set.
This installment in Delo Creative’s Be Nice To Your Kids series (BNTYK, for short) falls nicely in the category of Full-Scale-Apocalyptic Guitar Onslaughts. Watch:
Rumor has it Delo’s got another, gorier video on the way for a second new Gentle Ghost song. Tough to imagine it’ll top this, but I’ve got my fingers crossed. Excellent work all around, everyone.
Gentle Ghost’s continuing collaboration with Delo Creative on the “Be Nice to Your Kids” video series has yielded not one, but two (!) visual accompaniments for new songs. Check out “Dark Parts,” a nuanced, five-minute track that changes pace a couple different times and has a cool “cut out the heart” lyric, apropos for all the dried blood that’s all over the place.
This one doesn’t include a keyboard and is a little less urgent than “Spearherder,” which we first heard last week, but the songwriting has a bit stronger, more present narrative to it, I think. Watch:
