Often as we do, we at CHF, goes into somewhat of a ‘prose-poetry’ mode when we get inspired by bands and their work(s). And it wasn’t different with Chemtrails when we did a review on their song ‘A Killer Or A Punchline’ back in November of 2017. And now, as expected, ‘Ghosts Of My Dead Cats’ certifiably stamp the approval logo, and gives even more credence to our summation of what Chemtrails, the band, brings to the fore: They are tremendous.
Listen to the guitar, particularly on this song. It’s berating, but gentle. It’s comforting. It’s such an anchor, and the reason behind them putting it so in front of the song, is not a mystery. It works.
And take that with the ‘lifting’ digital snow flakes that ‘sparkle-up’ the song, is stupendous.
We’d called their song ‘A Killer Or a Punchline’: “…we love how it just flows down – into our digestive tract, disseminating the nutrients – minutes after ingestion.”
And for ‘Hosts Of My Dead Cats’ we’re taken away to a weirdly happy place. A hidden grotto of up-heaved farmer’s barn, full of long tan straw bails, which gives meaning to a life of open land, and memories.
It’s a feeling of being free, when listening to this song.
It’s a fabulous feeling.
It’s a bit liberating.
The invisible hand-cuffs on our wrists, seems to lessen in power.
They just become, ‘reminders’.
This is the third single from the quintet, from the long awaited (heck yea!) debut album. The project from the duo, Mia Lust and Laura Orlova, just hits the right chord.
It’s a proud moment for the ladies, and glad we’re there for some of the ride.
