Ghost Fish – S/T

Ghost Fish is a new project, which features Daemonia Nymphe, Louisa John-Krol, and Nikodemos Triaridis. This collection of fine musicians promises a lot. Also the beautiful artwork helps to raise the expectations.

When listening to this album you cannot escape to discover the variety in music and also some incoherence in the material presented. The electric guitar in some songs gives the music a touch of shoegazer, like in ‘Cigar Of The Red King’, ‘ D.D.L.M.’ and ‘Skin Meadon’.

These tracks are in contrast with the more ethereal pieces on the disc like ‘ A Candle In The Sea’, ‘Tangaroa’ and ‘Outside’. And, a more pop/rock like ‘Kik’ doesn’t really fit with none of these tracks.
The only true highlight on the album is’ ‘The Lonely King’ in which the spoken and whispered vocals work very well together with the violin and flute. This song is a marvelous piece of fairy music.

Overall the record is not hundred percent convincing. But, ‘The Lonely King’ and the ethereal songs make the album worthwhile for at least the fans of the label and these musicians.
