Premiere: Ginger And The Ghost combine nature and fantasy in the clip for Kindred Spirits
The Sydney future-pop duo accompany their returning single with a moving video, featuring themes that hit quite close to home for the pair.
Back towards the start of this year, much-loved Sydney future-pop duo Ginger And The Ghost returned with Glow, a joyous new single boasting a lush and uplifting chorus comparable to a blend between Purity Ring and Lykke Li. Today they return once again, continuing this unique, avant-garde tone of electronica with another new single in Kindred Spirits. Kindred Spirits combines the addictive and upbeat vocals of Missy Gilbert with a clanging, anthemic production, with tinges of this tribal-cross-tropicalness shining through the single's dense coating of percussion. This tribal-like touch is heavily emphasized in the single's video clip, which blends epic aerial shots of natural landscape with a touch of fantasy in the clip's bizarre, mirror-faced beings. While the mirror-faced beings may be a little confusing at first, it actually plays quite a big part in the single's personal, overarching theme, a theme which the duo expand on in a statement accompanying the clip, which they directed themselves. “The characters have mirrored faces, reflecting the beauty of each environment and finally each other. The Ghost character, inspired by ancient soothsayers, was in each scene as a guide for the characters. Ginger portrays a protector of sorts, standing amongst the offerings from each landscape, covered in empowering words as part of a ritual to honor nature and connection.”
The pair are currently mid-way through a mammoth European tour, which will wrap up in the coming months before they head over to the States for a couple of shows at this year's Burning Man and eventually, back to Australia before the year's out. Watch the video below:
