Sanders Bohlke’s contemporary indie-rock music is on the rise, setting forth the newest music genre known to date called Neo-Soul. With influential commonalities close to the likes of modern musicians such as Andrew Bird and Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s, Bohlke’s music portrays a likelihood of utmost importance. We are proud to present his most recent video clip “Ghost Boy,” which portrays the tantalizing deep-rooted theme of childhood nightmares.
Like many of America’s greatest musicians, Sanders Bohlke has his roots in the South. Currently based in Charlottesville, VA, it was in the heart of the Mississippi Delta that Bohlke found his voice, which has developed over the years into a bounding scene of rigorous beauty, yet rampant heartbreak. In Oxford, he attended The University of Mississippi where he furthered his craft by recording his self-titled debut folk album. Praised for its passion and downright honesty, Bohlke’s debut has taken him through expansive musical territory, sharing stages with artists such as Badly Drawn Boy, Tom Morello, and Gomez.
En route, Sanders had compiled a most impressive collection of songs that have been released as digital singles and taunting EPs. Songs such as “The Weight of Us,” “The War,” and “Search and Destroy” carry a dark tone and complex instrumentation, which has stylized and captured the sound that makes up Bohlke’s musical existence. His new albumGhost Boy, released on December 4 on Communicating Vessels, captures Sanders’ musical evolution that commits to layers of soundscapes containing flourishing elements of folk, indie-rock, and soulful vocals. Recorded in collaboration with producer, Remy Zero alumni and Communicating Vessels label head Jeffrey Cain, the album Ghost Boy includes tracks that are relevant to modern life, yet contain timeless melodies of gloomy satirical epiphanies. Bohlke’s video for the latest single “Ghost Boy” captures all of these elemental properties that create a certain vastness of undeniable beauty.
The animation team behind “Ghost Boy” has worked together on one of Sanders’ previous clips “Somewhere,” and yet again they present multitudes of pure genius. Kamil Dymek and Pawel Ptak, inspired by an early mix of the title track, have created a unique interpretation of Bohlke’s song that gives off Tim Burton-esque vibes. Chosen by YouTube to be featured on their Music home page, “Ghost Boy” is the very first video for Sanders’ new album. With gloomy drawings by Agne Zybyte that highlight the necessities of dreams, we are taken to a nightmarish land that occurs within the mind of a developing child. As viewers, we walk through a land of horror and extreme recurrences, but are taken to a place of imaginary substances and wonder. Sanders’ vocals captivate the innovative techniques and artful nuances that make up the scenes of this video as the tale of “Ghost Boy” unfolds right in front of our eyes.
The music of Sanders Bohlke is revolutionary for its time, and his ability to capture such withdrawn beauty with this team of animation experts is intelligent and noteworthy. “Ghost Boy” is a clip that echoes the modern era, and the timelessness of Bohlke’s vocals adheres to the contemporary elements of ageless music.
