Synthwave act Gost has shared a music video for his fresh tune titled “Burning Thyme” — check out the clip below. The track appears on Gost’s forthcoming album ‘Rites of Love and Reverence,’ which arrives on August 13th through Century Media Records (pre-order).
Gost comments, “I experimented a lot with instrumentation for ‘Rites of Love and Reverence.’ Writing a song featuring an acoustic guitar and cello was honestly the furthest thing from my mind with this record. ‘Burning Thyme’ refers to the past and was a term used to announce the burning of witches. Invoke the spirit that’s been hiding deep within.”
Speaking on the upcoming album, Gost previously said, “The lyrics were inspired by witchcraft themes. It’s mainly about how witchcraft has affected women throughout history. Witch trials and the subsequent executions throughout the ages terrify me. I fear, as a society, we are always on the verge of such horrible psychosis based on the misunderstanding and intolerance of one another. I try to educate myself on any historical subject I use as an influence, out of respect for the real people who actually lived through it.”
