Love Ghost is a Los Angeles based rock band who is killing it right now! It doesn’t get any better than a group of badass creatives who knows how to fuse together a unique sound and vision to deliver their listeners and fans the most immaculate music possible. This greatness was highly noticeable in their newest release titled “Let It All Burn”. Not only was the music itself a reflection of how extravagant this band is, but their video released to this song also kept us highly attentive to every element about it. We thoroughly enjoyed how they kept this grunge aesthetic that obviously correlates with their sound while giving us detailed images of fire and gritty ashes to complement the scorchingly electrifying title. What’s so amazing about this video was how it comes from a place of meaning.
The visual and song itself was actually inspired by the band’s own personal experience that helped them cultivate the visual to its fullest extent. “Let It All Burn” is how I see the world through my 18-year-old eyes. The hypocrisy and unwanted advice that weighed me down during my senior year led to this song. My Dad being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer made me more determined- “fuck what they say, I make my own way”. Love Ghost's way of showing vulnerability through a raw and authentic music video and passionate melodies made us love this band more than we did prior. It’s like, what can Love Ghost do wrong? It seems absolutely inevitable for this band to succeed at this point!
Listen to "Let It All Burn" here.
Welcome to Buzzmusic Love Ghost! We’re very excited to have you on our platform. Talk to us more about this hot new record you have out, “Let It All Burn”. Were the arrangements and sound inspired by any of your personal musical influences in any sort? If so who and why?
The song just came about from a random jam in band practice. It started out with a guitar riff from Finnegan, then Samson came in with a drum idea, and finally, Ryan joined with the bass. It was later refined, and lyrics added by Finnegan in producer Danny Saber’s garage. Ultimately, I guess you could say, it was inspired by bands such as The Growlers and the Cramps.
Knowing the song came from a personal experience of yours, was it at all challenging opening up that place of emotions for this record?
Yeah, if I’m being honest, I’m a total introvert and painfully shy in real life. However, when it comes to songwriting, I can leave my heart on the table for all to see.
In what ways were you hoping for the video to translate to your viewers? What kind of obstacles did you face in the creation process?
This video is filled with molten lava, fire, and metal flinging from the ceiling! What is better than that much chaos? I hope everyone is as excited to see it as we were to make it!
You did a smashing job and should be highly proud of yourselves for the turn out of this song. In what ways do you think this song helps the listeners get a more understanding of your band and artistry as a whole?
I think it is going to show the world a new side of us that’s really explosive, and we feel, more complete. This song and the ones we have upcoming are a fully-realized sound that we are very proud of.
Can you hint to our readers any exciting upcoming live shows that may be occurring soon that we should be aware of?
Yes! We have a show on November 27that The Troubadour (we go on at 11 Pm)! On December 17th we are going to play the annual surge holiday event party at the Virgil! We also have some very exciting news for 2020 that we will be announcing soon.
