There is a growing appetite for mixing original music with impacting imagery on stages and screens among an increasing number of artists in Australia. Music Love will strive to feature more visual artist/songstress hybrids (hit us up, people, also a playlist is coming!), and it is with this sentiment in mind that it is only right to highlight the works conceived by Missy Gilbert and Daniel Bourne from avant garde duo Ginger and the Ghost.

With popular songs like Where Wolf and One Type of Dark featuring the vibrating feminine and emotive tones of Missy's voice, Ginger and the Ghost have a brand new song out this week, the powerful anthem Glow.
