Trust us when we say you don’t want to overlook Zach James. The Austin based mastermind has been drawn to performing since his childhood, and now he credits Billie Eilish and Frank Ocean as some of his biggest influences. James’ innovative sound is something we haven’t quite heard before in the alternative pop realm, which is reinforced by his haunting new single, “Ghost.” 

Like many of us, James has had plenty of estranged relationships that ultimately can’t escape his memory. “Ghost” features James’ firm vocals paired with punchy percussion, which is just one formula for an incredible alternative pop song. As “Ghost” intensely draws to a close, we’re oddly left feeling empty but comforted at the same time. 

On “Ghost,” Zach James shared, 

“‘Ghost’ is another really personal song to me. The song is about reflecting on the loss of a relationship, and how sometimes, even after everything is said and done, people can still have a lingering effect on you.”
