Grayson Gilmour - Infinite Life! Out Now

Grayson Gilmour - Infinite Life! Out Now

Infinite Life! is the fifth offering from Wellington musician Grayson Gilmour.

Enveloping listeners in sultry layers of vocals, smooth strings and intricate off kilter rhythms, Infinite Life! combines warm pop songs with experimental beats, textures and weird loops.

Following his 2010 album No Constellation, Grayson receded to underground bank vaults and windy attics to record, before whittling his ideas into the 13 tracks. All the while Gilmour was piecing together film scores, touring overseas with his band So So Modern and attending the Red Bull Music Academy.

Recent singles, Lichtung + Minus Times Infinity (the video for which was selected for the BBC Music Video Festival) give a hint of an album filled with both immediately catchy melodies along with odd sounds. Self-hypnosis collages & manipulated field recordings, anyone?

And if that doesn’t grab you, why not judge Gilmour on the company he keeps? Infinite Life! sees visual collaborations with NZ illustrator Henrietta Harris (cover artwork) and video director Jesse Taylor Smith (Pond, Autumn Splendour) along with appearances from Claire Duncan (Dear Times Waste), cellist Charlie Davenport and drummer Reece McNaughten.

Plus, because we all love vinyl, we have been fund raising to help get the album pressed to LP. And in good news we are three quarters of the way to the target. Follow this link here for more information about the vinyl pre-orders and range of packages available.

1. Isn't This Exciting?
