Across four albums: Queen Of Denmark in 2010, 2013’s Pale Green Ghosts, 2015’s Grey Tickles, Black Pressure and his fourth solo album Love is Magic, John Grant has established himself as “a unique songwriting talent.” (The Guardian)
“The lyrics, of course, continue to be very important to me,” says John. “They’re just snapshots of everyday life where myriad moods and every sort of horrible and hilarious occurrence one can imagine mix with the pedestrian resulting in the absurdity and beauty of life.”
Anyone familiar with Grant’s story will recognise his battles – with addiction and health, with trusting love and relationships. From this turbulence he’s forged a riveting collection of often brutal diatribes and confessionals, where humour, fear, anxiety and anger overlap as Grant, with trademark candour, figuratively exposes the machinations of his saturated brain.
This event will be a rare opportunity to see John perform in a more intimate setting.
In a stripped back live show, John will perform as part of a duo, playing songs from throughout his celebrated career.
Support from Dog In The Snow
Helen Ganya Brown, aka Dog In The Snow, is a commanding solo performer; her recent album Vanishing Lands an imposing, haunting and luminous collection of songs in the darker spaces between dream-pop, art-rock and electronica, lifted by euphoric melodies, ravishing vocals and absorbing lyrics.
She has absorbed influences with brooding, immersive, filmic universes such as Sufjan Stevens, Scott Walker, David Lynch, Clint Mansell and Brian Eno. Brown also cites key literary and visual influences: Bergman’s masterpiece The Seventh Seal and David Lynch’s black & white lithographs impacted on Vanishing Lands’ desolate aesthetic and album artwork.
Brown performs as one of the singers and musicians in the touring version of Lost Horizons, the collective co-founded by Simon Raymonde, Bella Union’s label boss, who first fell for Dog in The Snow when Brown sent tracks to his show on Amazing Radio.
