Ghost Estate / Press

“(on "No Earthly Thing" EP): The album is aptly named as there is an almost other worldly, surreal quality to it, as if it was recorded somewhere between the concert hall and a ren faire, by the light of a gypsy moon. All of the songs are wonderful but the hauntingly beautiful Roslyn Castle is outstanding, and I am not generally a fan of instrumentals. Greensleeves has long been a favorite of mine and this version is one of the best I’ve heard. This is an amazing first album and one classical crossover fans and lovers of good music, that isn’t afraid to push the envelope, will want to have in their collections.”

“It's difficult to sum up the sound of Ghost Estate with one word and to me, that's a good thing. We live in an age where autotuned voice and live lip synching is pretty much celebrated and it is always refreshing to see artists and bands taking chances with their sound and churning up something new and different. Loughrey's compositions are experimental yet can still be accessible to a pretty broad audience. Luella's passionate vocals evoke strong emotion into every word she utters and her violin playing is no different. I would easily compare Ghost Estate with not only Loreena McKennit and Dead Can Dance, but fans of musical acts along the lines of Qntal, Black Tape for a Blue Girl, Portishead, Faith and the Muse, Mors Syphilitica, and Switchblade Symphony. "No Earthly Thing" is a breath-taking introduction to Ghost Estate and of course I'm interested to see what they will produce in the future.”
