Warp Records has announced the release of the fourth album by Gravenhurst, “The Ghost In Daylight”, on 1st May. Word has it Nick Talbot's new effort is musically more diverse, featuring gaunt acoustic pieces, such as “The Prize” - which you'll find below these lines - mixed with tracks built by dense layers of Mellotron, Optigan and old synthesisers. Acoustic tranquillity and electricity face to face with no fear. A sound that is the result of such mixed influences as My Bloody Valentine, Simon & Garfunkel and post-ambient studies by Brian Eno. “I find the divine in drone, dissonance and noise so there is a near-religious amount of controlled chaos beneath the close harmonies and finger-picked guitars” Talbot explains.
