Holy Ghost! – “Wait & See” (Stereogum Premiere)

“Wait & See” is a more straightforward pop song than excellent first album sample “Do It Again.” The simple four note hook here is surprisingly addictive — Holy Ghost! echo the piano melody across the song, in the vocal melody, the bass line, the soft chords, etc. I thought of “Do It Again” as a showcase for their production techniques and analog synth collection. “Wait & See” shows off their talent for making emotionally satisfying synth pop (see also “Jam For Jerry“).
