Cinematic gothic solo artist THE EFFIGY is preparing to unveil the deeply haunting and open new single, “Ghost”. Exploring themes of change, depression and suicide, it’s an honest and reflective song releasing on October 28th.

“”So often did the expectations of others put a noose around my neck. It was painful, and frightening, and incredibly liberating to leave the ghost of that life behind.”

“Ghost” is a melodic addition to THE EFFIGY’s already dynamic discography. While a darkness is conveyed through distorted guitars, strong bass and percussion, gentle melodies and soft vocal performances deliver a sense of calm and hopefulness. A rise in power throughout the choruses sees THE EFFIGY’s vocals soar and inject further emotion into the track. “Ghost”, while created from a shadowy place, does not succumb to the gloom but reflects on this subject in a journey of growth.

Originally from the UK and now based out of Perth, Australia, THE EFFIGY draws influences from the likes of GARBAGE, JOY DIVISION, EVANESCENCE, and KEANE, and is thematically inspired by gothic and folk imagery, along with mythology. THE EFFIGY’s music is a cinematic array of eclectic styles explored through expert composition.
