Ghostly Kisses Teaches How To Accept Defeat
Her newest single ‘Don’t Know Why’ is powerful in its powerlessness.
Celebrating success, confidence and empowerment is great but simultaneously, learning how to face up to failures can be liberating too. This is what ‘Don’t Know Why,’ the first release in 2021 by Ghostly Kisses talks about.
Ghostly Kisses is an interesting musical project, similarly to its name, full of paradoxical emotions, like acceptance and disappointment, failure and victory, featured on the newest single. Full of melancholy and reverie, French-Canadian singer and songwriter Margaux Sauvé creates mesmerizing music that almost stops the time.
We imagine a beautiful yet a bit haunted Victorian mansion as a perfect ambiance for the performance of ‘Don’t Know Why.’ Picture Margaux in a long, lace gown, standing next to the piano and you’ve got a perfect vision of her music. Her smooth, deep yet very delicate voice makes her sound like the most talented ghost we’ve ever heard.
‘The song talks about a separation, the moment when you realize you’ve tried everything and you don't want to fight anymore,’ admits Margaux. ‘It expresses failure, guilt, and the realization that you have to accept defeat and go your own way.’
‘Don’t Know Why’ by Ghostly Kisses is available now.
