We recently checked out the stunning new single “Sad Ghost” from dark pop siren ari hicks . “Sad Ghost “ is the second single off her upcoming EP It’s Not That Deep:Chapter 2.
“Sad Ghost” is a stunning slow burn alt pop single chronicling the feelings of being stuck in life. With moonlight-tinted synths under ari’s pristine vocals and an intoxicating bass heavy drop to boot, “Sad Ghost” is a delectable infusion of pop, electronic and alt R&B. The song is a deeply confessional track, with ari showing a raw vulnerability and a new side of herself that listeners have yet to see. On the meaning of the haunting single ari confides, “It’s about getting a little too familiar with an emotion that you probably shouldn’t, and allowing yourself to get a little too comfortable and stuck in that place of being. There’s a vacancy in my presence in this song or almost lack thereof, meant to signify the moment I noticed that I felt whatever this was for so long, I could barely even feel it at all anymore if that makes sense. Feeling alone, secluded, tired, tired of being disappointed and let down. Eventually the easiest thing to do becomes numbing yourself from it almost entirely. “Sad Ghost” is the voice I gave to that numbness.”
