Jekyll’s latest release, ‘Trampled Ghosts’, is a hauntingly introspective journey through the complexities of human emotion and experience. Drawing comparisons to early Muse, Radiohead, and Depeche Mode, the band showcases a profound depth of musicality and lyricism that sets them apart in the indie rock scene.

Recorded in the late hours of the night in a university studio in Manchester, ‘Trampled Ghosts’ marks a significant shift for Jekyll as they take on the role of self-producers. This change, while challenging, has allowed the band to delve even deeper into their craft, with mixing and mastering by industry veterans Mark Winterburn and Tim Debney adding a polished sheen to their raw creativity.

Thematically, ‘Trampled Ghosts’ delves into the bittersweet nature of memory and nostalgia. Each track explores the intricate tapestry of human experience, from the haunting realisation of Sonder (the realisation that everyone is living a life as vivid and complex as your own), Anemoia (nostalgia for a time/place one has never known), and Amentalio (the sadness of realising that you’re already forgetting sense memories of the departed),. Through poetic lyricism and emotive instrumentation, Jekyll captures the essence of these complex emotions with a raw honesty that is both refreshing and deeply resonant.

Driven by Joel Foster’s emotive vocals and Liam Singleton’s dynamic percussion, ‘Trampled Ghosts’ is a testament to the band’s evolution and growth. With the addition of Luke Jones on bass and guitar, Jekyll has solidified their sound, creating a sonic landscape that is as captivating as it is thought-provoking.

Overall, ‘Trampled Ghosts’ is a masterful work of art that invites listeners to explore the depths of their own humanity. With its rich storytelling and evocative soundscapes, this album is sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone who dares to take the journey.
