Ever feel haunted by the past? MACEDO has just the song for you. Made up of twins Michelle and Melissa, this duo has released a chilling lyric video to go with their song “Ghost Town”.
The two grew up in a musical household in California, where family gatherings often included gathering around an instrument. The two were immersed in an environment surrounded by music from a young age, and it’s definitely paid off.
The video reflects the song perfectly, showing the feelings of emptiness and loneliness through intricate illustrations drawn by Ken Christianson. It uses a mix of footage of the doodles being drawn, stop motion, and a timelapse. With these elements applied to the doodles, the video itself is much more powerful with the doodling illustrating the effects that mental health can have on a person. This song was written through a difficult time, as described by Michelle.
“Ghost Town” came from a place of total honesty and vulnerability. It was cathartic and raw to write. The song is about being haunted by the past and allowing it to make you stronger. We hope it can inspire people to be resilient and courageous in times of struggle.
Emotions felt during this video are strong, powerful, and resonate among users watching this video on a social media platform.
