About this item
Salt-bitten post-punk and ethereal introspection from Brighton's grasshopper (small ‘g’).
The culmination of eight years of playing together, 'SCUTTLE' features nine blistering and beautiful tracks filtered through the well-reverbed ears of Cure producer David M Allen. Ranging from the urgent and growling - as on 'I Think It's Time to Wake Up Now' and live favourite 'Backwards' - to the almost supernatural melancholy of album closers 'Hymn' and 'The Great Unravelling', 'SCUTTLE' is every bit as vital, original, and distinct as the seminal post-punk albums preceding it.
Matt says: Stylish post-punk with noir-ish and gothy undertones, Grasshopper’s blanket of sonic claustrophobia impresses and arrests. Though sporting technicoloured hair, lead singer Javi’s lyrics are shaded with multitude blacks and greys; vivid, existential and inner-gazing, with stark and sharp motifs and phrases that’ll circulate your mind long after the album’s completion.
