Josh Vine’s Facebook page lists Radiohead, Jeff Buckley and Ben Howard as key influences on his music so don’t come here expecting uplifting disco bangers or cheeky indie-pop. Vine’s new single ‘Ghost’ is as hauntingly beautiful as you might expect given the influences with his gruff, rasping voice shining out atop the swathe of guitars, drums and reverse engineered electro melodies. Interestingly, however, it’s the lesser known Yorke brother (Andy) who this reminds me of more as his band Unbelievable Truth springs to mind on hearing this track as well as a little James Bay and some Paolo Nutini. All in all, this track is earthy, haunting and entirely engaging which are all excellent qualities to have in a song.
