The English duo of Benjó James and Jack Wilson create an appropriately titled song entitled, “Haunted” and it blew me away upon listening. It’s one of the most beautiful and rocking songs I’ve heard in a while. It’s the same kind of power that made me listen to The Jesus and Mary Chain’s debut. It’s an interesting 5 minutes of music that you are going to want to hear again and again.
What makes this track stand out amidst all the music that is proliferating the internet today is the story telling in the lyrics. Looking through the lyrics, you get a taste for the ideas that they are pushing, and the life and times of the duos musical capabilities. It’s a mixture of poetry that you’re going to have a hard time shaking once you realize the power of the lyrics.
From the opening notes to the end of the song, you are going to be enthralled with the track. “Haunted” is one of those songs that just won’t leave you. It’s iconic, it’s dark, it’s alternative, it’s rock, it’s a great song. “Haunted” is off of their forthcoming album “Birthed by Wolves” and it’s one of the best things I’ve heard in a long time.
