The perfect soundtrack for our queasy, unsettled times, Ghostpoet releases the new track from his forthcoming album “I Grow Tired But I Dare Not Fall Asleep”, a dark, disturbing porthole into a roiling underworld, where paranoia reigns supreme.
Premiered this morning on Lauren Laverne’s 6Music show, “Nowhere to Hide Now” is a blast of tense, alt rock driven by Obaro Ejimiwe’s idiosyncratic vocals and rangy, jagged storytelling, fuelled by fear, exhaustion and anger.
More than simply becoming a purely cerebral exercise however, the end result is visceral and alive, a potent reminder of just how unique and essential a talent Ghostpoet is.
“I Grow Tired But I Dare Not Fall Asleep” is the much anticipated follow up 2017’s acclaimed ‘Dark Days + Canapés’, a record which couldn’t feel more prescient, a dystopian snapshot of the unease and anxiety we feel as we enter into this new decade, an uncertain future distilled across these 10 vital tracks.
