Erra share visualizer for new track “Pull From The Ghost”

Posted by on July 7, 2022

 

Erra will be hitting the road with Alpha Wolf, Thornhill, and Invent Animate next week. To get everyone pumped for their upcoming trek, the group has shared a visualizer for their previously unreleased song, “Pull From The Ghost.” Lyrically, the track goes into detail about an aspect of the human psyche, looking at almost the reverse of Stockholm Syndrome as Jesse Cash explains:

“The song is told from the perspective of a kidnapper hoping his captive will choose to stay willingly, but ultimately deciding to free them when that doesn’t happen. The captor/captive dynamic spawned from the idea that relationships are too often means of ensnaring others to be subject to one’s own insecurities. I feel that to bury your insecurities in another person is to hold them as a kind of captive.

The song touches on consequently missing out on opportunities of meaningful connection by comparing present partners to past ones and never moving forward openly. What can’t be found in the present is pulled from memories of the past, and acceptance of the present is never reached. The captor chooses to be alone rather than subjugate another person to this cycle. It’s ultimately a song about a tendency to overanalyze in pursuit of perfection, which while bearing many merits, can also result in instances of self-sabotage.”
