Video: Sea Ghost – “BBQ”

June 5, 2015

Sea Ghost are much cooler in their high school years than I ever was. A fairly new band of high schoolers from Atlanta, Sea Ghost have already collaborated with iLoveMakonnen and released a slew of singles that are unique and impressively memorable. Their latest single “BBQ” showcases their promising creativity and effortless genre combination of hip hop, shoegaze, and lo-fi pop. Fluttering wind chimes and hip hop beats form the surprising backbone of this drifting tune as the almost hypnotic vocals oscillate with patience. While the guitar chord progression slowly climbs, their thoughts on what seems to be unrequited love unravel with the uncertainty of youth. The video shows the band having the food-based, dress-wearing, “Sea Ho,” kind of no shame fun you have in high school with copious amounts of goop. Watch above and listen below.
