Grimm Grimm + Special Guests
The Rose Hill, Brighton.
This event is for 18 and over - No refunds will be issued for under 18s.
Now based in London, formerly Screaming Tea Party's vocalist Koichi Yamanoha delivers a cinematic and experimental sound through his new solo project under the name Grimm Grimm.
Following his debut 'Hazy Eyes Maybe' released by Pickpocket Records - owned by the shoegaze god, Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine) -, the sophomore album 'Cliffhanger' leds a soft psychedelic revolution, melting the folk-inspired acoustics, a common motif which defines his work, to layers of effects and harmonies.
Baroque folk, futurist lyricism and electroacoustic oddities characterize this new experimental work.There are opaque, semi-conscious pop deconstructions such as 'Afraid' or 'Take Me Down to Coney Island' as well as daydream songs such as 'Ballad of a Cell Membrane' comparable to the sonic fragility of Syd Barrett's later recordings and the cosmic folk leanings of Vashti Bunyan.
"Vast Baroque landscapes are painted with quirky drum loops and translucent dream journal poetics, while the general atmosphere is conduced by layers of reverberated guitars. The result is a tender and engaging listen that evokes images of a turquoise dawn heaving with a sorrowful mist." Louder Than War
West Sussex musician and sound artist Linden Pomeroy will be bringing his luscious ambient inventiveness to this show as support for Grimm Grimm. Linden applies field recordings, tapes, voice and treated guitars into compositions from expansive drones, to delicate ambient ballads.
