Raines ~ Ghosts

RAINES Ghosts Artwork!

Who is RAINES?  A fascinating musician from Liverpool, United Kingdom.  He is Mike Nelson!

My first impression of “Ghosts” : A tragically personal and hauntingly romantic track about experiencing love and the lingering effects after it all ends!

My take : Anyone who has experienced falling in love can attest to it being one of the most amazing feelings life has to offer.  Having someone there to make memories with and to share in the ups and downs we all go through can make successes feel larger and failures seem more manageable.  In many cases though, the magic ends at some point but the emotional attachment remains in one form or another.  In the brilliant track “Ghosts”, UK artist RAINES opens up and delivers a deeply passionate and heartfelt performance about living with love and having to try to let go of it.  It’s incredibly raw and undeniably beautiful with the gentle push from ghastly hands of our own fears, our unrelenting hopes and our fading memories.  And the thoughts of seeing “Ghosts” of what was, what is and what could be, become all too real!

But then again…it pretty much sounds like Coldplay doesn’t it!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
