Reviews

…huge pop melodies with weird electronic experiments, all delivered in his warm baritone hug of a voice. ‘Grey Tickles, Black Pressure’ is moving, funny, unnerving and angry; one of the albums of the year. NME

These are great songs, and perhaps the upbeat ending is meant to signify Grant’s new-found happiness and stability – after all, he is, he recently reported, in a “mature, loving, reciprocal relationship”. It raises the question of what his next album might sound like, given how closely his work has been entwined with the traumas of his life: if success doesn’t appear to have changed him, perhaps happiness will. In the meantime, Grey Tickles, Black Pressure is variously agonising, hilarious, uplifiting and moving: another bravura display from a unique songwriting talent. Alexis Petridis The Guardian ★★★★
