Ghost B.C release video for "Secular Haze"
Capturing that 1978 feel sonically, and now visually too
When talking to Decibel magazine about how they wanted their second album to sound, a member of Ghost B.C. – legal reasons or no, that US-only “B.C.” suffix is terrible – said they wanted it to sound like an album that came straight from 1978. You get an inkling of that idea hearing their single “Secular Haze” and their cover of ABBA’s “I’m a Marionette”, and now there’s a perfect visual complement that does the exact same thing. Shot by Amir Chamdin in the band's hometown of Linköping, Sweden and modelled after the sloppy pans and cheesy effects of those sloppy, low-budget TV studio performances so many of us grew up seeing in the 1970s and early-‘80s, the new video for “Secular Haze”, which premiered over at Vice, captures that feeling well. Watch the clip below.
Ghost B.C.’s new album Infestissumam will be released, with great fanfare I might add, April 9 on Loma Vista Recordings.
