GHST MDRN is the genre-defying instrumental project of composer and multi-instrumentalist Jordan Irwin (Canada). Ranging from post-rock to trip-hop to synthwave, he is adept at making film music for people who don’t like film music.

GHST MDRN is gearing up for an album release ‘Dark Days and Neon Nights’ on 30th September. The first single ‘Small Town Haunting’ is out 2nd September.

What inspired you to write this song?

“I was rewatching all of Stranger Things and I love all the music on that show so I wanted to see if I could write something that would feel like it could be on that soundtrack.”

When did you write it?

“This was written only a few weeks ago and it was finished in about a day. The whole album that this single is a part of was written, recorded and mixed in the span of about 11 days.”

Is this release different from your previous releases?

“Quite different. Most of my music is very guitar and piano based but for this project I tried to work with synthesizers almost exclusively. This is the first track I’ll have ever released that has absolutely no guitars on it. There’s a couple guitar tracks on the rest of the album but very minimal.”
