2012 release from the acclaimed Indie outfit. Recorded in-between tours, Ghostory exemplifies a fervent progression of SVIIB's growth as artists, preserving the common themes found on their last two releases but exposing them in different fashions. The familiar ethereal and enigmatic tones are omnipresent, surrounded by layers of influences from `80s Pop, Shoegaze and Ambient Electronic sounds. However, Ghostory comes with a story in mind; the tale of a young girl named Lafaye and the ghosts that surround her life. Ghostory is truly their defining work, beautifully crafted and haunting, with the story of Lafaye permeating the psyche long after the music stops.
From the Artist
"Everyone has ghosts", says Alejandra Deheza; "They're every love you've ever had, every hurt, every betrayal, every heartbreak. They follow you, stay with you." This detailed storytelling is evident from start to finish on the record, weaving a tale that moves between a fervent synthesized adventure and spacious lyrical euphoria.
"Ghostory is our most collaborative music to date," describes Benjamin Curtis, "Alley (Alejandra) and I have always written our music together, but always independently and on our own time. We knew we wanted to do something that was more sensual and spontaneous than anything we had ever done before, and that meant writing together in a room, coming up with ideas quickly and immediately reacting to what the other person was doing." Within Ghostory, the story of both Lafaye's and the band's journey will be told.
