Review: "Ghost of You" - Holly Hebe
Holly Hebe releases haunting new track, “Ghost of You.” As the tides change, so do people, and there is a real sense of loss that comes with moving on. When someone who was once your world is now no longer a part of your days, you have to mourn that relationship. You do a double take in the grocery store, or down a familiar road, because you feel their spirit everywhere. They’ve stained the walls of your mind, and their presence lingers no matter how much you try to block it out. There is a gut-wrenching sadness that comes with the realization that someone has been lost along the way long ago in the trajectory of your life. No matter where you go, or who you meet, you’re haunted by a lover past, and you’re getting used to the illusive company. “Ghost of You” emulates a sense of loss that is otherworldly, yet omnipresent.
“Ghost Of You” tells the tale of mourning the past version of a relationship, or a loved one, due to uncontrollable changes over time. The track is likened to the lingering memories of a haunted house. The lyrics express the struggles of desperately trying to hold onto something, or someone, when you know you’re destined to grow apart. This dreamy pop single is steeped in ethereal rhetoric. Holly’s soft vocals ache with sadness and longing. Regret transcends through every note. Prepare to be swept away by the somber emotions that “Ghost of You” evokes, and say a solemn prayer that the curse will be lifted, and you will be free.
