You know when you are just in a funk? Maybe you’re tired and hung over after a long weekend, feeling down and introspective, or just being straight up lazy. Just in one of those moods that feel like they may never end. And then there is that one track, possibly a new one or maybe a throwback, that just takes you out of it. The next thing you know you have listened to it eight times, your spirits are high, and the song becomes the sound track of the day; possibly the entire week. “Seconds,” by L.A.’s Ghost Loft was that track for me this weekend.
Despite the somewhat upbeat instrumental, this song tells the story of an obsessed lover begging for a secret affair and another shot of love: “Give me a second chance, just let go of the past / No one will ever know, no one will have to know…” This is one of those tracks that you know is going to be special after the first 15 seconds, but then when the vocals drop the vibe is taken to a whole other level. This smooth, futuristic R&B track delivers beautiful production values and immense energy in it’s few, but strong, 3 minutes.
Check out the track below, but I must advise you: the mysterious ‘baby I love you’ sample might get stuck in your head for a while. Look out for more to come from Danny Choi, the mastermind behind Ghost Loft, by checking out his Soundcloud Page. Enjoy.
