Ghost by Dragnfly Industri: Review
Jo Maloney, a 47-year-old mother of three who embarked on a solo career in music, is a testament that it’s never too late to strive for your dreams. Under the pseudonym Dragnfly Industri, the Melbourne-based singer-songwriter marked the beginning of her new journey with the release of her debut single, “Ghost.”
This catchy pop tune was written by Dragnfly Industri and produced by Jarred Doueal of Four4ty Recording Studios. “Ghost” is, in a way, an autobiographical song for Maloney, as it was inspired by her own inward journey of self-reflection during the pandemic. The song is her opportunity to pause and reflect on the person she has evolved and grown into. She eventually took a leap of faith to pursue the dream that is still burning in her heart after working for years as a professional cover band vocalist. As a result, the tune is loaded with airy vocals that soar through the atmosphere, ushering listeners into a fresh start. The dynamic is skilfully built up slowly with powerful guitars and steady drumming, which help set the tone for the song. It both starts out and ends intimately with angelic harmonies and delicate kalimba sounds, with an exhilarating bridge that keeps us engaged from start to finish. If the dragonfly is chosen as a sign of change, maturity, adaptation, and self-realization, then this single is an excellent starting point. Make sure to listen to this tune and keep a look out for future releases from Dragnfly Industri.
