Australian DIY electronic experimental pop duo based in Melbourne, comprises veteran musicians Sasha Margolis (Automating, Y35.3, The Salivation Army, and Spitfire Parade) and James Dean (Tugboat), under the half studio/half live moniker Constant Light, return with their emotional-ridden second single, “Black Ghosts”, featuring Drum & Bass arrangements by Keith McDugall, from the band’s forthcoming third LP, accompanied by a symbolic video by Sasha Margolis himself, managing once again to keep a distinctive and refined songwriting consistency without ever being the same as themselves, recalling in this the multifaceted sensibility of Piano Magic.
Enfolded in soul-stirring transformative ambiances, “Black Ghosts” airs a contemplative and immersive warm breeze of winding glowing wistful keyboard melodies, vibrant keys, and sad persistent sparkling guitar echoes, lying over a crisp skittery bed of rustling broken beats, to carry earnest heartfelt layered vocals through the heartbreaking loss of letting go.
Scenic visuals edited by Sasha Margolis himself, travel through a sun-setting portal of pale horizons, ancient tree-lined skies, and fluid expanses to immerse the viewer in the beautiful thought provoking catharsis of the soundtrack. A steady flow of consciousness observes a grey misty cove with a distant island of future dreams where translucent overlays slowly reveal a fantastic grand finale of vibrant, chiming mystical visions.
