Mysterious cinematic instrumental outfit Ghosts Of Torrez are back with their third single, ‘The Wailing’. Taking their lead from bands such as Explosions in the Sky, Joy Division, Sigur Ros, and Mogwai, GOT built their songs from soft, slow beginnings into cinematic style wonders.
‘The Wailing’ is accompanied by a Manga style video, “The Legend of Billy The Whale” (The Wailing/Whaling – who doesn’t love a play on words), which depicts the desperation of a broken, Captain Ahab type figure, vengefully taking on the beast he holds responsible for the death of his loved ones.
In 2022 the band will release their debut LP and have already started taking their cinematic style, psychedelic, electro-folk to the live arena.
