Ari Hicks drops melancholy new single ” Sad Ghost”


With almost 200k TikTok followers and acclaim from the likes of Vogue and Live Nation, Ari Hicks has thoroughly proved herself as a top artist to watch this year. She has over 7 million streams across many platforms and has received placements from popular Spotify playlists such as Pop Rising and New Music Friday.

Her upcoming EP, It’s Not That Deep: Chapter 2, follows her previous critically acclaimed release It’s Not That Deep: Chapter 1, which has been described as “fierce and empowering.” Ari has been proclaimed as a “dark pop siren who is one to watch.” Both EPs incorporate the upcoming album, It’s Not That Deep, a truthful and bold storybook about relentlessly stepping into your power and entering your villain era.

Her latest single, “Sad Ghost,” was released on November 4th and is a remarkable slow-burn alt-pop track recounting the feelings of being stuck in life. With ethereal synths that flow smoothly with Ari’s clean vocals and an intoxicating bass-filled drop to boot, “Sad Ghost” is a captivating infusion of pop, electronic, and alt R&B. The track is a profoundly confessional song, and Ari says about it:

“It’s about getting a little too familiar with an emotion that you probably shouldn’t, and allowing yourself to get a little too comfortable and stuck in that place of being. There’s a vacancy in my presence in this song or almost a lack thereof, meant to signify the moment I noticed I felt whatever this was for so long, I could barely even feel it at all anymore if that makes sense. Feeling alone, secluded, tired, tired of being disappointed and let down. Eventually, the easiest thing to do becomes numbing yourself from it almost entirely. “ Sad Ghost” is the voice I gave to that numbness.”
