Luke Ye­oward Half Way Records www.lukeye­ Luke Ye­oward is the for­mer lead singer of for­mer Mel­bourne-based New Zealand band King Can­nons that called it quits in 2013. Re­turn­ing to mu­sic af­ter a three-year hia­tus, Ye­oward has re­leased his first solo al­bum – Ghosts. It’s full of jan­gling gui­tars, the sound well suited to Ye­oward’s plead­ing vo­cals. The 11 tracks range from the reg­gae styled ‘Cool Wa­ter’, the post-punk ‘Who Can Save Us Now’ to the re­laxed west-coast coun­try groove of ‘Whose Side Are You On’, a song Ye­oward co-wrote with The Liv­ing End’s Chris Cheney. The ti­tle track ‘Ghosts’ is an­other laden with punk-style guitar riffs, but there’s none bet­ter than ‘Gainesville’, a catchy song show­cas­ing Ye­oward’s lik­ing for ba­sic, tre­ble chords. The nicely laid­back ‘Red Eyes’ is an apt fi­nale.
