Blake Lieder first entered the scene in 2017 with his single, "Work It Out," establishing himself as a powerful and unique voice in the Nashville independent music community. In 2018 he reinforced his presence with two more 80's-centric singles, "Supernova" and "Fake I.D." Now, a day before Halloween of 2019, Lieder returns to the scene with "Ghost," a grooving and eerily haunting track.
"Ghost" remains true to Lieder's experimental pop background, but brings an intriguing taste of bad-boy apathy into the mix. He addresses the struggle of building a relationship with an emotionally unavailable person, and how at times it can feel like they don't even notice you exist. While most would approach the situation with a melancholic, defeated attitude, Blake has a different take. Instead, he uses it as motivation to work even harder at breaking down the emotional barriers. With lyrics like "You know I could be your nightmare or your fantasy" and "I know I might be invisible, but you're gonna see," Lieder's determination cuts through, leaving you feeling inspired, rebellious and irresistibly tempted to delve further into the darkness.
