This is the second single from Lee Brunskjill‘s ‘Ghostwood Development Project‘ after the superb collaboration with Kool Keith earlier in the year.
When asked about the new track Lee said “I haven’t left the house much since covid. I’ve watched a ton of true crime documentaries during lockdown which influenced the dark feel of the song and I’ve been listening to a lot of late 80s House music too which has been a massive influence. The song features narration by a guy called Josh Porter who is a voice over actor. The words are something I loosely based around the dystopian future Clockwork Orange is set in but worded it as if it was set in the fictional town of Ghostwood.”
The name Ghostwood Development Project is a Twin Peaks reference as Lee explains:
“A few people have asked where I got the name from. It was a plan originally spearheaded by Benjamin Horne to build a country club on the location of Ghostwood National Forest. An intriguing subplot in Twin Peaks. Had this plot continued, I believe it would have revealed the imminent destruction of the town and elaborated on the evil spirits as well as the backstory of Bob, and his Lucifer-like nature. It also plays along nicely with the Twin Peaks‘ narrative of “evil in the woods.” The idea is to present my own personal experiences from an alternate timeline within the Twin Peaks universe where the project did happen and chaos was unleashed. My imagery, music, art, narrative and videos come from the area known as Ghostwood. “Stop Ghostwood” is a recurring theme throughout the saga. Naturally, I adopted the term ‘Vote Ghostwood’ insinuating hell on earth has arrived.”
