Montreal Dark-Pop outfit Ghost Love has released the lead single “Mourners Disco” from their first self-Produced album, Mourners Disco. The song grapples with grief but also follows a desire to celebrate life. The music video which accompanies the song was directed by Aidan McMahon.
Vocalist David Rancourt says:
The song deals with the pain of loss and grief after my mother passed away but also the desire to transcend the pain and to keep dancing and celebrating her life through it. She supported me when I came out as queer and showed me to navigate difficult times in my life so really the song is a tribute to her strength and guidance. It also speaks to the desire to sometimes hold on to the pain or grief as it is the only feeling that sometimes reminds us of the person that we have lost.
The single was produced by Ghost Love in Montreal, and mixed and mastered in Montreal by Pascal Shefteshy (Peter Peter, Kroy). Ghost Love’s single and album “Mourners Disco”, were recorded at the band’s secluded Montreal studio space during the pandemic lockdown. An “undercurrent of grief” runs through most of the compositions that will be featured on the band’s upcoming album in 2023.
