Handsome Ghost/ Some Still Morning/ Photo Finish Records
Massachusetts duo Handsome Ghost (Tim Noyes & Eddie Byun) make an evolved return to their roots as they announce their new album ‘Some Still Morning’ (out May 15 on Photo Finish Records).
‘Some Still Morning’ is an album that serves as an elevated return to the folk-inspired songwriting that has always been the heart of Handsome Ghost. It’s an album that pairs its melancholy with an appreciative acceptance and peacefulness, acknowledging that you cannot have light without dark. Songs like “Weeds” and “Fifteen Countries” are delicately sung along a strumming guitar like an intimate fireside reflection on getting older & growing up, yet still looking back on the people and things that have made us who we are. Elsewhere, piano takes center stage on tracks like “Christmas In Jersey” and “Weeknight Crowd” matching the haunting nature of the album’s production and Noyes’ earnest vocals which can sometimes feel like a whispered secret.
