River Huxley – Spirits Of The Dead

River Huxley - Spirits Of The DeadThe US synth pop artist 'River Huxley' is back with his spooky song 'Spirits Of The Dead'. The track is catchy for dance floor and con­tains gloomy sound effects like there were taken from hor­ror movies. I per­son­ally really like such extraordin­ary synth sounds.

I don't think it is neces­sary to men­tion that this a per­fect pick for a Halloween playl­ist. This song is part of our Spotify playl­ist ‘New Synth Pop Songs 2022‘. The playl­ist is updated con­tinu­ously. Follow this playl­ist now and don’t miss any of the latest synth pop hits in 2022.

River Huxley about 'Spirits Of The Dead'

River Huxley returns this October with his new­est single “Spirits of the Dead”, the sequel to his debut single released last year, “Creatures of the Night”. With a vari­ety of influ­ences from Synthwave, Horror Pop to Darkwave, Huxley con­tin­ues to blend and push the lim­its on his sig­na­ture Electropunk genre-bend­ing style.

The track fea­tures hard-hit­ting vocals behind a melod­ic yet dance­able and anxi­ety-indu­cing beat, per­fect for a night of ter­ror this Halloween sea­son. The track bor­rows its title from literary/horror legend Edgar Allan Poe’s poem “Spirits of the Dead”. Huxley explains on why he calls the single a sequel and his con­tinu­ous fas­cin­a­tion with all things horror:

“Horror movies and lit­er­at­ure are at the fore­front of my art­mak­ing. It’s a major source of inspir­a­tion, grow­ing up watch­ing the Universal Monster movies like Frankenstein and Dracula, and later becom­ing obsessed with John Carpenter, Stephen King and Stanley Kubrick. It made sense to me to treat my own music like movies and con­tin­ue the storyline.”

“Spirits of the Dead” is the first of 5 singles that will be com­piled into River Huxley’s first EP titled “Rites of Passage”, with the next songs being released every month from January 2023 to April 2023.
