Format

Two years after Pete Astor’s Spilt Milk, the ex-Loft and Weather Prophets front man returns with his new album, One for the Ghost. During that time, it seems that Astor has indeed come a long way. One for the Ghost is, on the whole, a more confident body of work, with Astor’s experience allowing him to produce guitar pop that seems comfortable and less self-conscious.

Over the course of the album’s ten tracks, Astor takes us on a dark journey of both love and grief, which is as celebratory as it is haunting.

Astor’s undoubted ear for melodic hooks, and lyrically mature wordplay, allows him to face the future with a wry smile. The jangling ‘Tango Uniform’ muses over death itself, while the album’s title track is both eerie and dark-witted.

Astor’s musical roots stand out brightest however, on the album’s stand out track, ‘Golden Boy’, a galloping track of rockabilly rhythms. This is rainy day psychedelia at its best.

As the album closes with the dark and broody ‘Dead Fred’, we’re left in no doubt that Pete Astor is back. He celebrates and grieves in equal measures throughout One for the Ghost. We wouldn’t want it any other way.
