The Ghost is Dancing
(Sonic Unyon)
The Ghost is Dancing is one of the weakest orchestral rock and chamber pop bands to arise in the last 10 years. The music is fluid and players tight, but songs are underdeveloped and lack the soul of experienced songwriters. As well, they are treading into the territory that many successful indie bands (such as Arcade Fire, by far the better tunesmiths creating more interesting and diverse sounds) have already covered. Whether they want to tackle some Belle and Sebastian, or Neutral Milk Hotel-influenced sounds, TGID don’t have the chops. But there is promise. Someday they may find their voice and create something masterful.
