Two Chords and the Ghostly Truth

A brief interstitial by Old Clone

In this dolorous little bit of electro-pop minimalism, just two alternating notes, Old Clone sums up a simple scenario: “the loneliest ghost spends valentines day wishing it’s dead heart no longer felt love for the living.” The piece appears between the two dreamy, super slow songs that constitute Sang the Lonely Ghost on Valentines Day. It’s quite lovely how two simple, briefly held notes can capture the sort of world-weary homespun techno fictions of a Kid Koala or a Douglas Dare, and Old Clone has managed it.
