An artist driven by the visuals, Y The Ghost has returned with the release of their new visually stunning video for “Hologram.”
About the video, Y comments:
“It’s about the theatrical nature of masculinity in the sense that it’s largely a projection. The cheering crowd at the end represents society’s fetishization. It’s not really a statement as much as it is a question.”
Since Y the Ghost’s enigmatic debut in 2015 with the simultaneously world-weary and uplifting song ‘Is Anybody Out There?’ pop soloist Jacoby Elliott has been on a daring quest to find love and immortality. Channeling influences varying from ’80s pop to dramatic film scores, the debut album entitled ‘Can U Hear Me?’ (independently released in fall 2018) is an emotional roller-coaster ride from glittering start to smoky finish, traveling through each layer of his psyche along the way. Describing itself as ‘gritty supernatural pop’, Y the Ghost harnesses both visual and sonic elements in a heartfelt attempt to bring genuine passion and depth to the often hollow world of Pop music — all of this while exploring abstract themes centered around identity, persona, and emotion.
