MP3/Video: Ghoul – “Dreambeat”

The crew at RoseQuartz labeled Ghoul‘s latest track an “ominous creeper” when they premiered it earlier this week. We couldn’t think of a more apt description.

The Sydney experimental four-piece create rhythms that sprawl like cobwebs with vocalist, Ivan Vizintin, coiled at the centre. And when he lets out that paralyzing voice of his, it’s difficult to describe whether the sensation is oppressive or alleviating.

“Dreambeat” will be the final track to emerge from Ghoul’s debut mini-album, ‘Dunks’, before it hit shelves 4th February. Much like its predecessor, “3Mark”, it’s a dark and insular slice of outsider art.

The refrain of “I can’t get satisfaction” just fumes with frustration and paranoia. And there’s no obvious escape in sight. The whole thing plays out like some endless wander through purgatory.
