Melbourne singer and songwriter Van Walker’s new album Ghosting dives deep into and explores all the stages of an emotionally scarring breakup, with the lyrics and sound working together to provide a truly immersive and moving musical experience.
Each song has its own unique sound and feel to it, with my personal favourite Long Night’s Journey To Day serving nostalgic 90s end-of-the-disco slow dance energies. While folk music is not typically my cup of tea, I found Ghosting to be a riveting album to listen to.
Van Walker’s music paints a picture in your head and can make you feel sad about something you may never have experienced, showing his masterful skills in the art.
Van Walker’s Ghosting is a must-listen on a cold rainy day – or any day really.
