Spooky season is still in full swing, which means it’s time to assemble our favorite tracks to get us in the mood. Of course, we all have our long-standing go-to’s, but that doesn’t mean we should stop looking for new ones to add to the list. Our newest obsession: ‘Sad Ghost’ by up-and-coming artist ari hicks.
This is the second single off her upcoming EP It’s Not That Deep: Chapter 2, a follow-up to It’s Not That Deep: Chapter 1, which we raved about here. ari uses her beautiful voice and an impressive synth sound to tell a melancholy tale of feeling alone in such a way that will make you want to listen over and over again. That means that although we’re saying it’s the perfect spooky season track, it’s one that you’ll be able to enjoy all year round.
Between the cryptically catchy chorus and iconically relatable lyrics, including our favorite: “Dying on the inside but you seem to see right through. Smiling but I’m blue.”, ari has once again proven she’s an incredible storyteller and an artist to watch. We’re excited to hear the rest of the EP, and we’re sure you’ll love it just as much as we do.
