Bassett’s Ghost Hwy is a contemplative piece of indie-rock that has Bassett take listeners on a lyrical and musical journey. Listeners can discern hints of Cherub Rock-era Smashing Pumpkin and Joseph Arthur. The track continues to build with strings and windswept instrumentation, imparting a more ethereal sound to the single.
As Bassett moves to the middle point of Ghost Hwy, careful guitar work and heartfelt vocals ratchet up the momentum. Pegged at a bit over five minutes, Ghost Hwy is complex and heady enough to keep listeners engrossed from the first note to the final refrain.
