about

Critical acclaim for Pale Green Ghosts...

“It's hard to imagine a more enjoyable and rewarding hour of music being released this year than Pale Green Ghosts: self-obsessed but completely compelling, profoundly discomforting but beautiful, lost in its own fathomless personal misery, but warm, funny and wise. - The Guardian – 5 Stars *****

"an exhilarating musical progression… "Pain it is a glacier… creating spectacular landscapes," he sings on ‘Glacier’: a truth his career makes self-evident.” - The Independent On Sunday – 5 Stars *****

“An album that, rather than juggling empty pop–song clichés, opts to expose the rawest emotional nerves: truth and beauty, rather than lies and blather.” - The Independent – 4 Stars****

“The abrupt changes between lush vintage balladry and stark electro ensure that Pale Green Ghosts is not as instantly cohesive as Queen Of Denmark. But it is arguably more satisfying, in its artistic courage, its refusal to meet expectations, and its willingness to paint a brand new picture of a gay demi-monde where the triumphs and tragedies have a deeper resonance than simple melodrama or camp… A masterpiece” - UNCUT – 8/10

“Several of the tracks here top the majesty of those on the debut… a bold, distinctive and genuinely excellent record” - Clash – 9/10

“Grant’s rich voice dovetails beautifully with the silvery synths of ‘GMF’ and ‘Vietnam’… This is audacious stuff from one talented motherfucker.” - NME - 8/10
