Boston's GHOST GRL (aka Gianna Botticelli) has this incredibly unique take on the whole folk/pop thing. Her latest single, "Comfortable Sadness," teeters across the lines of both sides of the genre. It's a little too pop for folk, and too folk for pop. It's an incredibly powerful and haunting (I typed that before I realized the pun, and it fits so well I have to leave it) song that is as intimate as it is epic. I don't think I've ever heard a song as huge as this described as "intimate," but that's the magic of GHOST GRL. Of course, all of that flies out of the window towards the end of the song when it turns into a straight up indie rock monster jam. You can watch the video for "Comfortable Sadness" below. Rewired, the new EP from GHOST GRL, will be out February 11. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on GHOST GRL, check out the artist's website. If you happen to be in the Boston area, there's an EP release show on February 13 at Lilypad in Somerville.
