Kermode paints a dark soundscape in new EP, ‘Retro Ghost’
Last month, Vancouver’s Kermode prepped listeners for the release of his newest body of work, Retro Ghost, by dropping a bass-heavy single called “Keep It Dark.” The lead single was met with enthusiasm for its deep vocals and pounding bass and was followed up weeks later by another formidable single, “Sideways.”
With the EP’s two pre-released singles leading the charge, Kermode has unleashed his Retro Ghost EP to the world. The compilation’s eight tracks are packed with pulsating basslines, gritty synths, and catchy vocals, delivering a high-quality, fresh dose of bass and house music to an already-thriving scene.
“This record for me felt like I truly came into my own,” the artist says of the new release. “A year ago I took Kermode in a completely new direction by primarily writing house and electro, but it was this record where I felt like I solidified my sound while still progressing it to the next level. I wanted each song to feel fresh front to back, so even though they are all a similar tempos, each song has a distinguishable theme.”
