Ghost Motel are a dark indie band formed by Patrick Huven. Their debut single, “Hush” was released on 23/11/18 through a record label that Huven himself established, entitled Wolfwater Records.
Lyrics “help me I feel so broken” are reminiscent of 00’s American punk. The music video reflects this, showing the band’s dark, earthy performance, with flashes of purples and reds. There is a stark contrast in the music video between interior and exterior, as reflected in the lyrics, “a shadow beneath my skin”.
The synth in “Hush” is what makes it original. The track crosses the boundaries of punk and indie rock, creating a ghostly but gritty sound, reflected in the dream-like aesthetic of the accompanying music video.
