Dynamic dream-pop duo Tiny Ghosts have released their most intimate song yet in “Grasp of Me.” Beginning with an electric melody and fading into an ear-catching pop-rock riff, vocalist Dayan Marquina delves into the harsh realties of a faltering relationship against this post-hardcore backdrop. She explains more about her connections to the latest single as a personal cathartic release.
"’Grasp of Me’ is a very angry song based on a true story. Even the part where someone pulled on my emergency car brakes while I was driving, It scarred me for life to the point where I had to write about it.” - Dayan Marquina, vocalist of Tiny Ghosts
A step away from their usual writing style, “Grasp of Me” was one that both Dayan Marquina and Eric Morgan went outside of their comfort zones for. Their usual indie-pop style is definitely detectable in the new song and is accompanied by a new hardcore, post-rock feel. For Morgan, the core riffs in the track were written during a time of struggle — juggling between an outbreak of a pandemic, parenting a child, and four-month-long nightly visits to see his hospitalized wife during a high-risk pregnancy.
"All the pent-up energy definitely comes out in it being much more of an aggressive song for us. I remember showing this idea to Dayan, and initially, she thought it was maybe too far in that direction for TG — and so we sat on the idea for a bit, and I actually began re-working it for my other band Brigades.
But after we started incorporating more and more of our older emo and post-hardcore influences on songs like “LoveLove” we came back to the idea which matched perfectly with this angsty lyrical idea she had been working on, and ended up turning into this super cathartic song for both of us that we are excited to put out!" - Eric Morgan, guitarist of Tiny Ghosts
