Holy Ghost! Can’t Break Free on ‘Okay’ – Song Premiere

Dance-ready track offers reflective lyrics and synth grooves

Holy Ghost!

Holy Ghost!

Harry McNally

“Okay,” a track off synthpop duo Holy Ghost!’s upcoming album Dynamics, blends earnest lyrics with suave electro-pop. It opens with woozy synth right before the reflective words kick in: “Surely you’re joking calling me this late / Sure, I haven’t spoken / Especially as of late / Oh, but the 10 missed calls don’t have the ring of last fall,” the lyrics go. 

“‘Okay’ is about being in a situation – in this case a relationship – that feels like a B-movie: You know you should turn it off but you just . . .can’t,” says member Alex Frankel.

The tension builds throughout the track – the kind that has you knowing you should let go, but somehow has you securing your grip – as the song builds with self-awareness and bouncy hooks. It’s a push-pull situation with a good beat.

Dynamics is set for release on September 10th on DFA Records. Holy Ghost! will be kicking off a U.S. tour on August 25th.
