Grey Tickles, Black Pressure

bella union


Released: 9th Oct 2015


white 2LP + CD

Released: 9th Oct 2015


there’s something about grant’s poetry and lyricism that disarms you from the off, leaving you wide open for his euphoric highs and intimate lows to hit home.

whether he’s disarmingly confessional about his medical issues on the ballad title track or asking you for help on his thesis on carpet burns on the sleazy, prince referencing ‘snug slacks’ just one track later he’s got an incredible way of making you listen and hang off every word. no one, living or dead, has ever captured the endearing and the futile side of life in such a concise or catchy way. “the confessional king’s funkiest and finest yet”. – 8/10 uncut “unhappy people, a Russian once suggested, are more varied and interesting than happy ones – which makes john grant a very special person indeed.” – 8/10 mojo
