Renata Zeiguer

Record of the Month: Renata Zeiguer "Old Ghost" - release party at Elsewhere 06.20

On first listen, the songs and sounds of Renata Zeiguer’s debut album Old Ghost are deceivingly simple. Indie rock influences clash with her delicate voice in interesting if not straightforward ways. Yet there’s an appealing aspect of Old Ghost that continues to draw the listener in as she paints an image of the world that is filled with naturally occurring voids that are at once brutal and beautiful. Her voice feels equally morose and triumphant as she explores themes of identity and loss. Nature also plays a large role in Zeiguer’s lyrics; cosmic elements of our world like the moon and the mundane creatures who inhabit it both haunt and captivate the singer. These poetic lyrics burrow themselves in her ethereal voice and unfold in expansive and cathartic moments as the production swerves from angular to harmonious. Old Ghost is an album that burns softly if heard in the background but illuminates brightly when it is lived with. The entire record can be streamed below and you can hear Zeiguer perform at Elsewhere on June 20. - Tucker Pennington

Renata Zeiguer drops new single in anticipation of new LP "Old Ghost"

In anticipation for her new LP, Old Ghost, debuting in February, Brooklyn-based songwriter Renata Zeiguer (ex Cantina)has decided to pull back the curtain on the forthcoming album and release the first single. Old Ghost's second track, now made playable on her Bandcamp page is "Bug" is a suprisingly haunting song inspired by Kafka's six-legged monster. The single hints at the themes we might expect from the upcoming album, like nostalgia spurned by external places, and contending with the internal ghosts we may struggle with on a day-to-day basis. Listen to "Bug" streaming below, and catch Renata Zeiguer at Union Pool on 2/23.-Olivia Sisinni
