Scottish singer-songwriter Murdo Mitchell is following up his 2021 EP “Stay Noctural” with his new single “Ghosts”. Starting out as a dark murmuring of guitars, light synths and melancholy vocals, the track transforms into a frenzied finale. Murdo says he wrote the song during lockdown when he was in his “tearing my hair out” stage of being locked inside. It’s about when trust between parties breaks down. The music itself, whilst based in acoustic-driven rock that turns electric over time, has a cinematic quality to it. I could see “Ghosts” being easily used in various TV show montages. The Scots know how to make sad rock really rock and Murdo Mitchell is no exception.
Murdo started busking from the age of eleven but only got to release his debut EP last year. He is currently working on new material for his next release and has shows booked for Liverpool Sound City (1st May) and St Pancras Church (16th Sept). St Pancras is possibly my favourite music venue so maybe I’ll get to pop along!
Enjoy “Ghosts” below, the single is out now. For more information on Murdo Mitchell, follow him on Twitter.
