PREMIERE: Lane 8's Video for "Ghost" featuring Patrick Baker
The electronicist explores feelings of unrequited love. Yes, that old chestnut.
Once upon a time Lane 8—a.k.a Daniel Goldstein—made garage rock. Sometimes he made it with his sister. They were just kids. Then he got into creating hip-hop beats. Then he moved into trance and progressive house. Some time in 2012 Lane 8 really found his groove and with his sound flitting between pulsing electronica—like "Diamonds" featuring Solomon Grey (600k plays on Soundcloud and climbing)—and a woozier kind of glitch-pop as on his most recent track "Ghost."
Premiering above is the video for said track. Full of light flares and longing looks, and some pretty sweet motorcycles, the storyline is your classic case of girl chooses boy and then chooses a different boy. That's gotta suck.
Lane 8 had this to say: "To me, 'Ghost' is a song about unreturned love, and the feeling of invisibility that can go along with it. We wanted that emotional landscape to be explored in the video and really loved [filmmaker] DEMS' approach. I feel they created something aesthetically rich and textured, while also telling an interesting and relatable story.”
