Having taken a break in 2010 after their previous 15 year stint of success, friendship and their creativity brought Scottish Indie veterans, Idlewild, back together for 2015’s album: ‘Everything Ever Written’. Along with that came critical appraise, a top 20 slot and tonnes of sold out gigs in venues as large as they had ever played in.
Ex-My Chemical Romance frontman, Gerard Way, is back for the first time since 2016 with his latest spooky release: Baby You’re A Haunted House.
Appropriately released just in time for the Halloween season, the track is about our inner ghosts and how it feels being in love while dealing with our own demons. It’s fuzzy, lo-fi pop sound resembles some of Way’s previous work, specifically reminiscent to ‘Zero Zero‘ from his 2014 album, Hesitant Alien.
Way stated that he “tried not to overthink it too much” and that’s obvious from the get-go. Diving straight into the chorus, the track is simple but catchy, short but sweet.
