Following the release of her first EP, Fear of God, Lindsay Holifield has just shared her brand new single ‘Ghost’ which explores her journey of self-discovery.
This track is the first to be released from her forthcoming full-length album which reflects on a new period of her life, her art and her music which centres around her desire for creation instead of her need for salvation.
Holifield draws inspiration from contemporary singer-songwriters such as Maggie Rogers, Marcus Mumford, and Bre Kennedy. These influences shine through on ‘Ghost Girl’ as delicate and silvery vocals sit above atmospheric strings and soft acoustic guitar. Voices whisper in the background and you are completely enveloped in a magical soundscape of Holifield’s creation.
The track was written with a friend, Alex Blue, in the summer of 2019, and is about the temptation to fade into a ghost of yourself, to check out and back away, but also hearing an echo of your true voice deep down somewhere, reminding you that you exist despite all the difficulties.
As someone who has faced mental struggles for most of her life, this song is particularly personal and poignant for Holifield.
