Delyn Grey wrote “Ghost Town” two days into quarantine in Toronto. As an artist, Grey stands for making art that is fearless and important, and in the midst of the unknown, she was able to comment on what she was seeing happen around her.
We are all still watching as towns, businesses, and individuals are impacted by this pandemic. For Grey, the sign of the times was apparent in the empty streets of her once-bustling city. “Ghost Town” fills this remaining space with heavy piano, soaring vocals, and rich production. The song grows and pulls back, letting the power of the emotion shine through.
The accompanying video is shot in black and white to highlight the stark sense of isolation. Toronto’s Junction area is the perfect shooting location for its train tracks and city views. The cuts are rhythmic, accentuating the song, and Grey herself is powerful in her movements, though somber in her performance.
