For their third album, Ghosts, Germany's Frequency Drift takes a subtle turn, but not to off course from their musical journey. This disc ups the ante with an often edgier sound thanks to stronger guitar presence. You can hear it in the blistering solo nearly midway in Mermaid, and at the end of Tempest which, considering the title, is relatively calm throughout.
Yet, that latter formula characterizes much of Frequency Drift's arrangement in the past, and on Ghosts. Driven by Antje Auer's ethereal vocals, a layer equally airy violins, and keyboards, the song Come certainly established the contrast of lightness and heaviness. Yet, for the greatest intrigue Dreams easily defines the album. It's a showcase of sound composition and musicianship. All players and instruments, including Christian Hack's flute, offer an entertaining and lasting audio vision.
Equally atmospheric and grounded, ethereal and edgy, Frequency's Drift's Ghosts offers a delectable serving of melodic and progressive rock. Recommended.
