Grant has continued evolving, creating his most electronic record yet; one that begins with a mad, wonky synth-pop evoking a scattered, hallucinating mind, before sliding into a more sombrely reflective hangover in its latter half.

in collaboration with Benge (Ben Edwards), analogue synth expert/collector and a member of electronic trio Wrangler (with whom grant formed creep show),  the diamond-hard, diamond-gleaming ‘Love Is Magic’, “is how I’ve always wanted my records to sound, but I didn’t know how until now,” Grant says. his battles with addiction and relationships are epitomised in the album’s brilliant opener ‘Metamorphosis’, as if his warring psyches are facing up to one another, as impervious synth-pop and brain-on-fire imagery (“Tiki bar, rat soufflé, Buik regal, Marvin Gaye”) melts into dream-ballad introspection (“Questions left unanswered, spiritual extortion”) and back to synth-backed mania.
