GHOST FISH is a new collaboration project which sees Louisa John-Krol, Daemonia Nymphe and Nikodemos Triaridis creating eleven particular songs. If you know Daemonia Nymphe you probably already love their style full of obscure atmospheres and so deeply linked to the Greek tradition. Well, GHOST FISH is a peculiar album where electric ballads meet the Daemonia Nymphe sounds made of violins, arps and percussions. The result is permeated of a magic atmosphere so melancholic and energetic at the same time. The label's sheet to describe the sound name Lush, Birthday Party and Siouxsie and the Banshees. Well, there are certain influences that could link their sound with Lush's sounds or with the raw impetuosity of Birthday Party but songs like "Skin Meadow" remember also some Cocteau Twins moments (see the rhythmic section). The songs are divided into acoustic ballads and electric ballads with some faery inserts where the Daemonia Nymphe give their help mainly on the rhythmical partiture and on the creation of some particular atmospheres (like the beginning of "Tangaroa" where the Louisa chant duet with a guitar like instrument or like on the simil acoustic ambient three minutes long "Outside"). In my opinion this has been a successful collaboration and it's cool to see that Prikosnovenie is still exploring new way of proposing their releases.
