“Ghost Boy” is a short and sad ballad by ModernGrim, an artist who has perfected the art of pulling on the listener’s heartstrings. Despite the heaviness, I can’t help but describe the track as soft. It's filled with soft vocals, soft beats and even softer instrumentals.
You know that feeling when you can’t do much of anything except lie in bed and stare at a wall? Or when you find yourself waking in the middle of the night after a dream has reminded you of something you buried deep inside, something you would just rather forget?
Those are the emotions that this song weaves in the subconscious mind of the listener.
The song is a gentle nudge into a reverie of despondency, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying the track. Even happier listeners can get lost in the tenderness of the song.
