‘Ghost Of Love’ could be described as a blend of Rock ‘n Roll, folk and progressive pop with a penchant for country music’s slide guitar and a cinematic universe. A bitter sweet almost David Lynch alike imaginary expression with sometimes a more rough and noisy psychedelic approach. The structure of the music kept uncomplicated but very effective; every thing’s carefully slotted in its place to just punctuate and enhance her silky, sultry voice.
