After a successful 2019, dropping 10 originals independently and amassing over 500k collective plays on Spotify, Mel Ody is back for his 4th release in 2020, enlisting previous collaborator Like Lions for ominous single “Living With Ghosts”. The talented Greek producer is truly showcasing his talent and ability to combine electronic music and pop with orchestral sounds, crafting a dark masterpiece that is out via tastemaker label Lacuna.
Electric guitar melodies and captivating atmospheres introduce the tune, perfectly complimenting Like Lions’ impactful vocal lines. The drop explodes into a gritty showcase of battle horns and hard-hitting drums, while Like Lions’ passionate singing allows the track’s story to unfold:
“Earlier this year, before the pandemic, there were other global tensions happening that had me looking back at some of the major crises that have been playing out around the world in my lifetime,” revealed the singer and songwriter. “When I sat down to write lyrics for “Living With Ghosts”, the horns and the drums felt like a battle call and I wanted to use that energy and power to try and amplify some of the stories and sentiments about the effects of war and conflict that have been passed onto me by friends who spent time on front lines.”
