Emerging Sydney band Ghostgums are gearing up for the release of their debut single, For Now. It’s an important song for the group, disguising real weight under its dream pop expressions: at the start of his twenties, lead singer Jamhound was told he had suddenly become a dad, long after a breakup. Songwriting was the only way he knew to grasp with being thrown into parenthood literally overnight.
“The doctors called it a ‘cryptic pregnancy,” says Jamhound. “The mum doesn't show any signs of being pregnant until birth. But although it was a massive shock, we soon learnt that something like this happens just once in hundreds of thousands of births... So it also felt very special.”
For Now, like most Ghostgums songs, began its life as a love song for Jamhound’s son. But it quickly ripened into a tender account of the isolation he felt in his newfound parenthood. After starting its life as a humble demo recorded in the Blue Mountains, the song now features production from Winston Surfshirt, and was mixed by Total Giovanni’s Matt Hadley.
This is an 18+ event.
