Brooklyn’s How German Is It Gives Up The Ghost

How German Is It – “Giving Up The Ghost” mp3

How new wave it is. This infectious little ditty from How German Is It has a unique charm. Taking their name from a novel from 1980, these Brooklynites continue a tradition of literary pop that has become prevalent among artists in their fair city. “Giving Up The Ghost” starts deceptively simple, only to grow like a fern, unfurling its leaves and branches to the sun to reveal something vital. A strangely memorable reflection on letting go of something that isn’t there.
