First appearing on their magnetic 2015 full-length Drone Pop #1, Belfast shoegaze/noise seven-piece Documenta have shared an extended version of the David Holmes-produced ‘Love As A Ghost’, ahead of its July 22nd release proper. Clocking in at an expansive 6 minutes and 44 seconds, this updated reflection on the original compounds Joe Greene & co.’s proclivity for rhythmic intensity and sonic exploration, while meticulously adhering to the Documenta manifesto of kaleidoscopic walls of guitar and melodically-charged, evocative vocals.
Speaking of which, and per Holmes’ suggestions, ‘Love As A Ghost’ is the first Documenta track to feature Roisin Stewart on lead vocals. Joe Greene (vocals, guitar) “knew it was her song as soon as I heard it. The sense of detachment yet feeling in her voice still gets me.”
Reportedly working on new material too, 2016 is set to be a productive year for Documenta. Get a listen to the superb new rendition of ‘Love As A Ghost’ below.
Catch Documenta play Lavery’s Belfast, on July 22nd. We strongly suggest you do so.
