COLLARBONES – The Ghostship single and video out now // Remixes by Bon Chat Bon Rat + Kilter by blak3b5

‘The Ghostship’ is the third single from the Collarbones’ debut album Iconography. The track shows Collarbones at their reflective best with lyrical imagery of youthful pasts and future resolve.

Backed by subtle shifting vocal loops, sliding percussion and heavy bass drops,  ‘The Ghostship’ builds with layers and layers of singer Marcus Whale’s vocals, threatening to break into noise but never ceasing to engage with the listener.

Collarbones are having a stellar year, playing to packed out venues around Australia and receiving plaudits from critics worldwide for their spacious, left-of-centre pop music.

‘The Ghostship’ is accompanied by a haunting, sensual video clip created by Justin Mclean that compliments the beautiful aesthetic of the Iconography cover photography by Lucien Alperstein. Friends Bon Chat, Bon Rat and Kilter provide impressive remixes of ‘The Ghostship’ also.
