The alt-folk musician James Auger aka A Choir of Ghosts (UK / SE) drops his new single “Skin & Bones” on November 20th, 2020.
„The song is about the realization that you can’t always “fix it” for the people you love. Sometimes they have to solve it themselves, and you can’t do anything but watch and hope for the best. In order for things to grow to it’s full potential, you sometimes have to let go.
It’s a hard realization but I think a lot of people can identify with the feeling of sudden emptiness, when you come to something in your way that you cannot share, but rather have to go about alone. Your only hope lays in that once the obstacle has been passed, you can rendez vous on the other side.“ – James Auger
We must first make our way into the wilderness through the deep, dense Scandinavian forest before we come across A Choir of Ghosts. There you can find him singing his energetic, modern and longing folk songs.
A Choir of Ghosts’ musical foundation is: A solid ground consisting of a reminiscence of Kurt Cobain, covered with the water, the sun and the air of bands like The Tallest Man On Earth and the Hollow Coves, which give you a feeling of various shades of nostalgia.
A Choir of Ghosts released a few singles since 2016 – “Morning Light” currently has over 1.4 million streams on Spotify, and the trend is rising – and released an EP that received international media coverage and carried him across the borders of the Swedish wilderness, among others on extensive tours through Central Europe.
With the release of his widely acclaimed debut album “An Ounce of Gold” in April of this year, the Swede by choice was once again able to secure euphoric international press praise. After a spring European tour that was canceled due to Covid-19, “Skin & Bones” is the first musical sign of life from A Choir of Ghosts.
