Ghostly Kisses, renowned for enthralling both audiences and critics with stunning live shows last year, has revealed her latest and most adventurous endeavor yet: the sophomore album Darkroom, slated for release on May 17, 2024. This exciting news is complemented by the release of a new, enchanting single titled On & Off.
Last year was marked by significant achievements for Ghostly Kisses, including a collaboration with George Fitzgerald, and a landmark 22-date EU tour, featuring a notable performance at London’s Islington Assembly Hall. 2024 opens with even more milestones, as Warner Music and Red Light Management collaboratively venture into the Japanese market, selecting Ghostly Kisses as their spearhead artist.
The announcement of her second album, Dark Room, follows the release of the enchanting single On & Off, created in collaboration with Oli Bayston, recognized for his work with Rachel Chinouriri and Olivia Dean. This luminous alt-pop track is a masterful creation, born from the complexities of volatile love.
Darkroom, represents a significant evolution, offering a deeper exploration of their unique sound. Holding the reins of complete creative control, the duo cements their position as influential figures in the ever-changing pop music landscape.
The lead single, On & Off, sets a high bar for the album. Margaux, the voice behind Ghostly Kisses, weaves an emotive narrative of love’s intricacies through her evocative lyrics. The song captures the essence of longing and passion, with lines like “You’re so close but yet far / I always wonder how you are / From the morning’s light to the night’s embrace,” delivered in Margaux’s uniquely enchanting vocal style. Co-produced with Bayston, On & Off stands out as their most commercially appealing track yet, showcasing the duo’s artistic growth and Margaux’s hauntingly beautiful vocal prowess.
As Darkroom prepares for its launch along with their new single On & Off, Ghostly Kisses is set to deliver an album rich in emotional depth and sophisticated sound, further expanding the horizons of alt-pop.
