Electronic | Mel Ody And Like Lions Unleash Ominous New Gem “Living With Ghosts”

Posted by on July 3, 2020

Greek talent Mel Ody is back on tastemaker label Lacuna, enlisting frequent collaborator Like Lions for ominous cut “Living With Ghosts”. The two artists linked for the second time back in January to create “Oizys”, another dark gem that was named after the ancient Greek goddess of grief, anxiety and depression. 

Their new collaboration undoubtedly displays a similarly dark theme. “Living With Ghosts” sees Mel Ody fully embrace his ability to incorporate orchestral elements into his music, creating a menacing instrumental that is as captivating as it is sinister. Electric guitar melodies, lively strings and massive brass stabs are brought together to create a truly dystopian soundscape, that is perfectly topped off by Like Lions’ distorted vocal lines; with his songwriting the Seattle-based singer and songwriter chooses to reflect on the long-lasting impacts of global crises and conflicts. 

“Earlier this year, before the pandemic, there were other global tensions happening that had me looking back at some of the major crises that have been playing out around the world in my lifetime,” revealed Like Lions. “When I sat down to write lyrics for “Living With Ghosts”, the horns and the drums felt like a battle call and I wanted to use that energy and power to try and amplify some of the stories and sentiments about the effects of war and conflict that have been passed onto me by friends who spent time on front lines.”

Cristina Soto was the original vocalist for power-duo Tritonal. Outside of her killer joint discography with Tritonal, Cristina has collaborated with artists such as CloZee, Illenium, Said The Sky, and Psymbionic. Her “One Thing” collab with Psymbionic went big on Bassnectar‘s “Into The Sun” mixtape, where Bassnectar remixed the track. This acoustic mix pulls from the driving remix vibes of the original Seven Lions while taking on its very own shape through the open and epic guitars played by Cristina’s brother, Rob Soto.
