Hurricane Bells is a new project from Steve Schiltz, the singer and guitarist of Longwave. Tonight Is The Ghost was entirely written, played, recorded (with a MacBook and an Mbox), and mixed by Schiltz alone; a combination of songs fully crafted recently and others newly architected from pieces written throughout his years as a songwriter. With a moody, late-night and soulful feeling, Tonight Is The Ghost is a mix of chiming guitar-pop and hauntingly melancholic, mournfully atmospheric songs.
