Pop-punk meets alternative rock sound on Love Ghost new single “Jealousy”

Pop-punk meets alternative rock sound on Love Ghost new single “Jealousy”
“Jealousy” is an alternative, grunge rock song. From songwriter Finnegan Bell: “I’ve always worn my heart on my sleeve, and being this passionate can hurt at times. I can be a people pleaser for people that don’t care as much about me, and I’m trying to get out of that unhealthy habit. I had recently been betrayed and a lot of old insecurities and PTSD was brought up because of that. I wrote the song “Jealousy” to one, just cope with what I was going through but also allow people to feel like they weren’t alone with what they’re going through. A lot of people have experienced similar things to what I went through like loneliness, rejection and being lied too. I hope this song acts as a mental bandage for them in some way.”
