GRACE LIGHTMAN

Grace Lightman brings us the beautiful rich synths and shimmering 80's pads of 'Silver Eater'. We kick things off with the punchy percussion and snapping envelopes of 'Repair Repair', forming a soft synthetic bed for Lightman's dreamy vocal line. Much like the titular follower 'Silver Eater', there are elements of soft soul and dream-pop swimming around in the rich synthetic wash beneath. 

Move along further and pieces like 'Exoskeleton' are much more geared towards the more meditative side of things, covering the vocals and strings in a layer of reverb before breaking out into soulful demi-disco. Pieces like 'Ordinary Life' and 'Get Me Out Of Here' are much more low-key, relying upon shadowy abstractions and sweeping filters, where 'Deep Space Getaway' could easily be a Human League or Duran Duran synth-line but bolstered with a more modern dancefloor-orientated tilt. A varied and fascinating ode to 80's pop, but brought into this century with brilliantly modern production techniques and the soaring drive of modern digital synthesis.  

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: For people who like the crisp, rich synths on albums like the brilliant 'Chris' by Christine & The Queens, or the optimistic throb of 80's pop, 'Silver Eater' is for you. Brilliantly immersive synth-pop anthems, perfectly produced and beautifully written, and brought to you by the ever-reliable Handsome Dad records. What more could you want?
