The World Outside

"The World Is Outside" by Ghosts
from "The World Is Outside" (2007)

Although clearly written for summer days and possibly driving on the open roads of the countryside, the title track from Ghosts' upcoming debut album just sings of dusk; warm evenings where the sky is illuminated both by the moon and the sun, and everything feels okay. This isn't necessarily a bad thing - there are far too many songs written for dancing in the fields on a summer afternoon. Though it is a subtle difference, we need more tracks in this world for running in the fields at dusk. Ghosts have got this down to a tee, and their music is a mixture between the better side of English MOR and unconventional indie pop in the vein of Delays and Easyworld.
