DEPARTED CHILDHOOD INNOCENCE GETS A LILTING MAKEOVER FROM BEGUILING SOUTH AUSTRALIAN ARTIST RIVER LANE AND HER LATEST TRACK 'GHOST OF A GIRL' - AND YOU CAN EXCLUSIVELY GRAB A PEEK AT THE BRAND NEW MUSIC VIDEO TODAY ON THE SOUNDCHECK!
Hailing from regional South Australia, River Lane ain't your typical singer-songwriter; a former tradie-turned competitive water skier-turned musician, this charming artist has found her niche amongst the heroes she grew up admiring - from Mumford & Sons, Fleetwood Mac, Mumford & Sons to Cheap Trick, there was never any chance this rural-tinged songstress would ever land in a predictable sonic environment, and her latest track 'Ghost Of A Girl' hints at her background and upbringing with refreshing innovation.
Delving into growing up and the contrary struggle of leaving innocence behind, 'Ghost Of A Girl' lingers with its cinematic arrangement and the divine vocal stylings of River Lane herself, with its warm and yearning tones just begging for a visual representation - and this week River will unleash the accompanying clip for the haunting tune.
Teaming up with Matt Taylor from Middle Ground Productions, the video for 'Ghost Of A Girl' celebrates the stunning landscape of River Lane's beloved South Australia, while also complementing the lyrical concepts, with the occasional moments of turmoil and significant nods to Bonnie and Clyde (plus the feature of River's Dad's 1970s Charger that has been in the family for decades).
Showcasing more of what's to come from River's forthcoming 2nd EP, 'Ghost Of A Girl' is a passionate, down-to-earth gem from a quietly enigmatic artist - and if this haunting track is anything to go by, there's a heck of a lot more sonic gold still to come from River Lane.
Come catch an exclusive sneak peek below at River Lane's brand new music video for 'Ghost Of A Girl' below ahead of its official release this week.
