Ethereal, hypnotic, dizzying, gripping, lush, oceanic, driving, cinematic, haunting… these are good words to describe A Waking Ghost Inside, the debut release from San Francisco-based Mercury’s Antennae.

Comprised of vocalist Dru Allen (This Ascension, Mirabilis) and multi-instrumentalist Erick R. Scheid (Translucia), the band’s sound is distinctly reminiscent of ‘90s-era Projekt acts. Ranging from the heavy moodiness and guitar drone of Lycia to the unadorned acoustic beauty of Love Spirals Downwards to the passionate rock of This Ascension, the duo also draws on ambient and tribal influences, contemporary electronica, the sweet melodic pop of 4AD, and the blissful guitar noise of bands like Curve.

The title A Waking Ghost Inside refers to the spark within each of us, the impulse to create and discover the innate energy that unites us with immeasurable realms beyond. As humans, we experience a sense of longing to connect to oneself on a much deeper level. In our search we catch glimpses of other possibilities of life and spirit. A Waking Ghost Inside sonically explores these themes and the potential to awaken one’s own authentic self.

Fans of darkwave, heavenly voices and spacious atmospheres will find themselves at home within these 77 minutes: it’s an alchemy of harmonic, swirling guitars, lush, glimmering instrumentation, and Dru’s dream-felt and sirenic vocals.
