Remember those halcyon days when videos used to tell a story that made you think about what it was all about and your interpretation of it was different to that of a friend or associate? Staffordshire’s Epic45 certainly do.
This is a wonderful video featuring a Mark Hollis-lookalike who appears to be struggling to come to terms with childhood memories – a common theme explored in Epic45’s releases so far. According to Ben Holton from the band, the creature represents an imaginary friend from childhood.
What is more, ‘Ghosts On Tape’ is a fabulous song from its rustic intro, to the breathy, dreamlike vocals and finallly to the wonderful head-spinning chorus. Definitely one of my favourite tracks from last year or, indeed, any year.
