[INTRODUCING] Summer Ghost

April 12, 2013

Don't Need No Melody

According to Facebook, Summer Ghost was born just a few months ago, but you might not be a stranger to singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Alexander Comana. The Cardiff native is a lifetime member of folk rock five-piece Among Brothers (they’re not actually related). Summer Ghost is his new solo side project.
Comana recruited trombonist Lewis Griffiths and backing vocalist Laura Jayne Atkinson for help on his second release, Seven Sisters (the first one was the more electronic The Atheist Youth). He handles the keys, electronics, guitar, and lead vocals.
The result is a really nice little piece of folktronica, one that succeeds at telling a story through instrumentals, with or without the lyrics. It’s no surprise that Comana is so successful at spinning musical folklore, though; he’s a professional.
Comana uploaded that track to Soundcloud a week ago; it’s free to download.
