Single review: The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger – Moth to a Flame

A trippy, luscious and psychedelic track built up around some gorgeous vocal harmonies, Moth to a Flame is the first single from The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger’s upcoming album Midnight Sun. 

The duo, consisting of Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl, seem to have conducted a successful experiment in creating not only a piece of music, but an atmospheric, hallucinogenic ‘experience’. And while the song is in a minor key the results are very pleasing that can only be described as an aural meltdown.

Sean and Charlottes voices blend together wonderfully, and while the vocals are heavily processed, this only serves to contribute to the overall atmosphere of the song.

Throughout the track there is some very sweet slide guitar work and unexpected chord changes that make Moth to a Flame an unpredictable yet compelling song. At just under 7 minuets long the unrelenting hypnotic drums and screaming guitar keep you hooked until the song falters and relinquishes to silence.

The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger’s album Midnight Sun is due for release April 28th through Lennon’s Chimera Music label.
