ALBUM REVIEW: Grayson Gilmour | Infinite Life!

Rating7square-600-2This is Grayson Gilmour’s second album and it shows a marked advancement in poise and maturity. The drums are pulled back and instead the focus is on a rich and ornate palette of guitars and synths that provide a cinematic and immersive backdrop for his considered vocals which bring to mind fellow art-pop luminaries such as Wild Beasts, Talk Talk and Scritti Politti. This is intellectual pop music but not without a real heart and soulfulness, increasingly revealed on each listen. Modern contemporaries like Animal Collective and Radiohead may lay claim to these paths yet Gilmour is negotiating his own bold and elaborate route through similar territory.
