This week we turn our “In the Spotlight” focus to home turf and Hamburg indie pop two-piece The Girl & The Ghost. Dorothee Möller and Timon Schempp play some lovely fragile and emotional indie pop with elements of brass layers in songs like “Grey Passengers”, and songs as “Silent Messages” and “Railway Station” are proof of some contemplative, lovelorn songwriting that characterizes a sensitive, thoughtful generation of new musicians today.
Apparently the band draw inspiration from writing music in a house in the countryside in Denmark (who doesn’t love the Danish countryside?) and have put together a few songs with Lars Cölln (Pohlmann, L’Aupaire, Flo Mega) and Philipp Schwär (Fynn Kliemann, Cäthe, Get Well Soon), and the May single release “Silent Messages” is one of those new outputs from that collab. The question is when there’s a debut album to listen to!
