Camouflaged under the elegant features of Hitchcock’s favourite actor and ‘North By Northwest’ hero Cary, the enigmatic Grant returns to the shellfish-emblazoned outlet with ‘No Lights EP‘, a lush four-tracker replete with steamy deep house grooves and laid-back chuggers.
Showing a further facet of his skills after the success of his “impressively executed” second album for Lobster Theremin‘s sister label Mörk, the compelling ‘Cranks‘, here Grant serves up a vibrant menu of dreamy melodies and Chicago-flavoured shuffles tailored for rooftop action; feet anchored to the ground but mind floating in a thick after-party kind of haze.
Our pick, the delicately throbbing and hypnotic ‘The Depth‘ builds the kind of smooth Lustwerk’ian vibe that brings dancefloors to instant boil with its overly suave vox samples and iridescent synthlines softly drilling through several folds of dusty FX and sooty saturations. Feel the sea breeze on your skin, close your eyes and let this balmy belter cast off the burden of a long working week in a flash. A choice cut from this all in all rewarding package.
No Lights EP is released via Lobster Theremin on 21st July, pre-order a copy from Bandcamp.
