H. Grimace Debut Album And New Single

  • Published in News

Dark, smoky post-punk sounds as London-based H. Grimace announce their debut LP. The London-based four-piece’s debut album Self Architect is set for release April 7th via Opposite Number. The band are sharing the first single from the record ‘Land/Body’ online now, see below.

Offering some insight into the new single, the band said "'Land/Body' is a song which took inspiration from the idea that we are living through the end of nature and what changes have occurred from the likes of mass production and standardisation. It delves into the possibilities that this has effected our sense of belonging and roots as Hannah sings ‘Nothing thrives in uniformity’, truly resonating that notion."

The upcoming debut album follows on from 2015’s sold out ‘I Am Material’ tape and the critically acclaimed ‘Royal Hush’ 7”, which came out last year. ‘Self Architect’ reveals a sharper and more empathic feel to the band’s already relentless output.

Made up of Hannah Gledhill (vocals/guitar), Marcus Browne (guitar), Corin Johnson (bass) and Diago Gomes (drums), H. Grimace masterfully hone in on their part shoegaze, part post-punk compositions on their upcoming debut. The foundations of which are laid by the integral guitar pairing of Marcus Brown and Hannah Gledhill, from Yorkshire and Melbourne respectively.

Singer Gledhill's vocals and lyrics are self-reflective and question contemporary social pressures to do with image, work, power and our connection to the land. The collaboration in the album's opening track '2.1 Woman' features poet and artist Vivienne Griffin who critiques the constant pressure exerted on women to create better and better versions of themselves.
