Berlin based trio GHEIST have a long affinity with song writing, composition and melody; defined by their process of crafting powerful electronic music from behind a piano. 2020 presented a year like no other in modern memory, leading GHEIST to produce an EP that is unlike any of their recent output with the aim of providing an honest interpretation of their artistic expression. Through the ‘acoustic – unusual’ EP on their own RADAU imprint, the band proudly present their personal and vulnerable acoustic versions of their own music to the world.
All musicians over time develop and finely tune their creative processes, GHEIST are no different; the majority of their songs begin life behind a piano and a microphone, a simple idea or chord transformed into driving club ready tracks. Their ‘acoustic – unusual’ EP, opens the door to this process and forms a connection to the audience, that have been starved of their sound for what seems an eternity.
“It’s times like these that lead us to slowing down and gaining a new perspective. Our acoustic EP reflects on that very fragile and intense moment of change, creating an intimacy that allows you to dive in and get lost in your very own cinematic mind” – GHEIST
Reverse engineering their existing catalogue, GHEIST have transformed tracks ‘Salvation’, ‘Closest Ever’, ‘Venere’ and ‘Unusual’ into acoustic masterpieces. The full EP presents a juxtapose in their style and reveals their emotional approach to music creation, further solidifying their position as a Hybrid-Live Act and band. Through the use of strings and piano, ‘Salvation’ is reimagined in a dark, emotive and powerful style that shifts the main focus to the melancholic vocals. This theme is continued on ‘Closest Ever’ and ‘Unusual’, the latter infusing folk-style tones. Finally, EP track ‘Venere’ shines as a bright and positive note.
Sharing this project with the world, GHEIST look to reconnect with their audience, presenting the EP as an honest reflection of their feelings and most intimate moments during the last 12 months. Via the ‘acoustic – unusual’ EP, they invite you into their world to share their lyrics, melodies and emotions.
