Atwood Magazine is proud to be premiering the new music video for Gayle Skidmore’s “Pale Ghosts.” Between the strings and arpeggiated piano, “Pale Ghosts” sounds like it could have been plucked off of a film score. The whistling and occasional guitars add to the texture of the song, where even Skidmore’s voice acts more as an instrument than the only focus of the song. It’s the type of song that suits a lonesome walk or drive home from work as the sunsets around 4PM. It’s a song that displays the difficulties in letting go. As Skidmore sings, “If I didn’t need to miss you, I could dig a deeper grave,” she holds the notes on every word as if she’s scared of releasing just the word into a void like the person that the song is addressed to, and the ghosts that she finds comfort in.
