The video is directed by David Wilson who received a Grammy nomination for his work on Arcade Fire’s We Exist and recently collaborated with Tame Impala for their Let It Happen video.

Grey Tickles, Black Pressure, recorded in Dallas with producer John Congleton (St Vincent, Franz Ferdinand), refines and entwines the two principal strands of Grant’s musical DNA, namely the sumptuous tempered ballad and the taut, fizzing electronic pop song. There are newer musical accomplishments across its panoply of towering sound, like the title track’s new steely demeanour, while the ominous drama of “Black Blizzard” echoes both John Carpenter and Bernard ‘Black Devil Disco Club’ Fevre’s beautiful and icy synthscapes. The contagious, gleeful “You And Him” marries buzzing rock with a squelchy electronic undertow, while orchestral drama swathes the bad-dreamy “Global Warming” and the album’s gorgeously aching widescreen finale “Geraldine”. John recently released a NSFW (or at least not for the squeamish!) album trailer featuring the title track which can be viewed HERE.

Grey Tickles, Black Pressure will be released 9th October on Bella Union.
