    Saskatoon Duo Pushes Boundaries with Experimental Multi-Genre New Single

    March 7, 2024

    Introducing "IDC IND" (I Don't Care, I Never Did), a track by BTHEGHOST and Lucci Lu that dives deep into the messy reality of relationships. It's a story about that kind of connection where you know it's not healthy, but you just can't let go. We all tend to put our partners on pedestals, but sometimes, we find ourselves swinging between moments of frustration and desperate need.

    In the chorus, you'll feel that inner struggle echoing through the lyrics, with spoken words clashing against unspoken thoughts. It's like a battle within, and anyone who's been in a similar situation knows exactly how it feels. The way the vocals intertwine reflects the chaos of it all, creating a unique sound that captures the essence of the turmoil.

    And let's not forget the shaky vocal effect on the featuring artist Lucci Lu's second verse. It's like that shaky feeling you get when emotions are about to overflow, when your body can't contain what's churning in your mind.

    So, get ready to immerse yourself in the rollercoaster of emotions with "IDC IND". It's a raw, authentic journey through the complexities of love and longing. Enjoy the ride.

    BTHEGHOST with New Easy Listening Music Out Of Saskatoon

    August 25, 2023

    Saskatoon-based artist "BTHEGHOST" just released a new single shelter off his upcoming album "hostage."

    Due to construction, B was unable to access his usual recording space, so his solution was to bring the studio to the shower, setting the microphone up on a stand placed in front of the shower head. After lighting a candle to avoid the brightness of the overhead light and finding a smooth instrumental to record over, B performed his most vulnerable and sincere ballad to date.

    "BTHEGHOST" is becoming known as a mixing engineer and artist who focuses heavily on post production, but this single couldn't be more different, with most of the mixing being done by the shower and bathroom's acoustics. That unique combination of mood, setting, and mixing leaves the listener with a truly heartfelt and sincere experience.
