“The Swedish band Ghost reliably hits the three Ps hard: proggy, punky and poppy. Its fifth album, IMPERA, packs the ambitious sprawl of ’70s rock epics into (relatively) bite-size packages with amusingly confounding story lines. ‘Spillways,’ one of the album’s most straightforward tracks, starts with a pounding piano straight out of Billy Joel’s ‘All for Leyna’ and quickly segues into a sweetly constructed rock tune. Think Bad Religion with ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ running through its veins.” —THE NEW YORK TIMES
From the pages of the gray lady to the silver screen… Ghost presents the phantasmagorical video for Spillways, rendering the irresistible earworm of IMPERA’s latest single — a solid contender to continue the band’s streak of US Rock Radio #1s (IMPERA’s Call Me Little Sunshine and Hunter’s Moon bringing Ghost’s career total to five consecutive #1s) — in majestic visual form courtesy of director Amir Chamdin.
