Southampton’s finest ambient-rock band Submariner return with a spiritually inspired general election track ‘Ghosts’.
Filled with emotive lyricism and an organic flair for earworm melodies ‘Ghosts’ is catchy in the chorus and melodic bringing out a chilling haunted effect.
After a strong 2017 where they sold out headline slots on the South Coast, made their major festival debuts and shared the beautifully emotive single ‘Stumbling’, Submariner are primed and ready to mark the end of one chapter and the beginning of another as 2018 promises tours, a debut EP and further festival appearances.
Speaking of the track, the band said: “The song is spiritually inspired by last year’s general election. The narrative involves a woman who gives her life to fight for other people, the oppressed and the broken.
“She is haunted by the ghosts of those she and the system failed to save. The chorus addresses her opponents and details the flaw in greed, especially the lines ‘reap the seeds, there’s nowhere for them’ & ‘I’ll be dead, long before you live’ indicating that the oppressor seeks wealth only in financial sense, but without compassion and kindness, has no real quality to life.”
