We need to make our way through the deep, thick, Scandinavian forest, into the wilderness until we reach A Choir Of Ghosts, fingerpicking the guitar to folksy vigorous tunes that you long for. The front person, James, has a musical foundation: the soil, is through the reminiscence of Kurt Cobain, topped with the water, sun and air of Tallest Man on Earth and Hollow Coves, making ACOG give you a feeling of all shades of nostalgia.
Having released a couple of singles – “Morning Light” has reached over 1.2 million streams on Spotify and keeps going – and the Woods EP, that caught the attention of international media, it brought ACOG beyond the wilderness of the North of Sweden, to tour in Central Europe. For James to be a solo performer under “A Choir of Ghosts”, the choir is ever-changing with collaborators from around the globe.
The upcoming debut album “Ounce of Gold” is being closely produced with Terry Benn and will be released by Greywood Records. “Ounce of Gold” is an ode to past relationships and to going solo, spoken through elements of nature we’re all rooting from.
The album’s first single “Southwest of the Moon” will be released April 12th.
