Americana roots band The Sound of Ghosts, has released their new single, “Train To Nowhere.” The single exemplifies the bands’ signature style of fiddle fueled melodies, soaring harmonies and story-telling lyricism.
The Sound of Ghosts are an Americana roots musical collective hailing from Los Angeles, California. The five-piece collective of accomplished musicians have a culmination of traditional front porch Americana, folk-laden melodies and vintage rock’n’roll. The Sound of Ghosts have succeeded in bringing their own edge to this timeless genre of music.
The Sound of Ghosts are James Orbison (vocals, bass), Anna Orbison (vocals, ukulele), Ernesto Rivas (lead guitar), Phoebe Silva (fiddle) and Jon Sarna (drums). United they have pushed the boundaries of typical Americana and created an ever-evolving sound demonstrating the diversity of each of their own different musical backgrounds. Included in this are elements of classic rock, musical theatre, country and everything in between.
“Everyone’s different perspective is an essential part to the diverse sound we create.” – Rivas explains.
Their upcoming release entitled, “Delivery and Departure,” is filled with diverse soundscapes and a multitude of sonic textures. The new music is set to be an immersive listening experience.
“I hope it inspires people to look at the world in a little different way. Notice the things around you… that’s what we write songs about.” -Anna Orbison
Lead single “Train to Nowhere,” is an upbeat folky song with driving guitars, catchy hooks and story-telling lyricism. Showcasing the band’s signature sound of fiddle fueled melodies and soaring harmonies, accompanied by a powerful trumpet solo, it is assured to get listeners up and dancing.
“This song is a perfect mix of what we do best.” – Anna Orbison.
Originally inspired after watching two acclaimed Netflix documentaries entitled Big Easy Express and Festival Express the narrative was built around the ideology of escapism and the importance of adventure. The song symbolizes the journey of self discovery and introspection.
With their growing California following and authentic sound, The Sound of Ghosts are ready for their next musical endeavor with the release of “Delivery and Departure” due this coming fall.
