03-09-2013 // Album: Sheron - Ghost Hopes

This was released a few months ago and I've been listening to it on a regular bases, but never got around to write a little something on it. Which is really too bad and I'm sorry for not sharing this beauty sooner with you, my dearest readers, because this 3-track EP deserves more than just that little bit of love it got from me these last few months, it deserves your love too!

Sheron is the new project by Andrew Sheron, who was previously known as Everyman Of Parts and is also a part of Balto, one of my favorite bands of the last few years and a band filled with talented musicians. Like Sheron. And Ghost of Hopes is his first release.

Opening track "Keyser Söze" has a certain urge to it, thanks to the pulsing violin pushing it forward. With Andrew's remarkable voice and the great percussion it's a beautiful track reveiling a new little secret everytime you listen to it. Sheron is definately trying out new things here and it's a direction well worth exploring. "Tell Me Again" and "The Doubted" are both more straight up singer-songwriter songs, but both are really good. The choir in "The Doubted" again shows some experimenting by Sheron and gives the song something extra.

For a 3-track EP this is pure gold. Three beautiful songs combined, I could only ask for more new music. Let's hope there's a full album in the works as I type. In the meanwhile, let's just turn up the volume and put this on repeat, in our bedrooms, while we lay in the dark, watching the ceiling, singing along, not knowing we're keeping up the rest of the neighbourhood.
