Since I discovered the elusive New England duo Grandeur last February, the band keeps releasing some pretty impressive and emotional post-punk goodness. Marked by the utterly seductive and unique, Richard Butler, or possibly Mark Lanegan-esque, strained, raspy voice over poignant and piercing guitar chords, sombre synth lines and powerful drum machine beats.
WL//WH is pleased to premier Grandeur‘s new single “They’re Everywhere“, a dark love song about a relationship, oppressive forces, and enduring pain. The distinctive seductive, soulful and emotive voice croons, bursting simultaneously with fear and comfort, over top of a minimalist and hypnotic rhythm section heightened by harrowing and sharp guitar riffs and airy, dismal icy synth. Despite the gloomy sense of oppression, menace and tragedy embodied by the wistful instrumentation, they’re force to fight with unwavering strength and courage against all odds in a catharsis of heart-wrenching and romantic sonic emotions.
