Today, San Fermin share “Your Ghost”, the final single and focus track off their brand new EP, Your Ghost, out today via songwriter Ellis Ludwig-Leone and vocalist Allen Tate’s label, Better Company. The label, which Ludwig-Leone and Tate formed in 2020, has since seen releases from Wye Oak, Wild Pink, Sorcha Richardson, Pure Bathing Culture, Daisy the Great, and more.
On “Your Ghost,” Tate compares a day with the ghost of a partner to the (more complicated) real-life version. The lyrics are delivered over a cheery guitar riff and propulsive drums; both an indictment and a celebration of a complex relationship: “I make love to your ghost / When I dream about you.”
“I was noticing that when someone’s gone, their absence can take on a life of its own and become a presence in itself,” wrote Ludwig-Leone of their newest track. “You go through your day thinking about this person, what they would say in certain situations, how they would act. Their absence takes on all these personality traits that are more of a reflection of your feelings about them (and their absence) than the actual person.”
