Clams Casino Hypnotizes with Samuel T. Herring on "Ghost In A Kiss"
Clams Casino's latest single, "Ghost in a Kiss," feels like a poem. The track utilizes emotional choices in amplitude, choice of instrumentation and a smart structure that leads you on an audial journey. Most notably, the electronic musician decided to have experimental vocals by Samuel T. Herring which overlay onto the track in a haunting, captivating way. He chooses to rap/vocalize the song lower than we've ever heard anybody really do before (in typical Herring fashion) and it takes the song into a dark place that brings a sense of nocturnal energy, a comfortability with the darkness. The video for song is directed by Grant Singer (The Weeknd, Future, Ariel Pink, Ariana Grande) and shows the tale of a main character being traumatized by a past love whether she died or left out of nowhere. It is beautifully shot and you can feel the pain of the struggle to cope.
