Song Premiere: Ward White, "Watch The Hands"

Today, Ghettoblaster has the pleasure of premiering the new single from jangle-pop/glam-rock artist Ward White. The Los Angeles via New York songwriter is gearing up to release his newest LP Diminish, which was recorded by John Spiker (Beck, John Carpenter), features contributions from keyboardist Tyler Chester (Margaret Glaspy, Rainstorm Brother) and drummer/percussionist Mark Stepro (Brian Fallon, Panic! at the Disco), and was mastered by Joe Lambert (Brian Eno, Jay Som, Real Estate).
Diminish, out November 2, is an 11-track collection of sparkling art-rock that juxtaposes bright, soaring melodies with morbid ruminations on death and humanity. Through winding narratives and stream-of-consciousness prose, White examines the nature of how we relate to one another and how the knowledge of our own mortality informs our lives.
New single “Watch The Hands” is a stream-of-consciousness exploration of death, focusing on the story of a young boy who falls into a well. Musically, te track features White’s Bowie-esque croon atop chiming glam-rock guitars, textural synth accompaniments, and thumping percussion.
