A Sun Full And Drowning' is the stunning debut album from London four-piece Grass House
The album was recorded over the last six months at Monnow Valley Studios in Wales with producer Jim Anderson - best known for his work with Cold Specks, The Twilight Sad and 2:54. Featuring ten tracks, the album includes new versions of the bands critically acclaimed and sold out singles 'Spinning As We Turn' and 'And Now For The Wild' and their current single 'I Was A Sreetlight'.
Sonically an interest in the sound explorations of Brian Eno, and the more freak-out Velvet Underground jams, as well as more contemporary influences such as The Walkmen, Crystal Stilts, Deerhunter & Ducktails certainly influence, yet through an unerring wish to create something progressive, the band have developed these influences into something unique and captivating.
The Grass House line up of Liam Palmer (vocals), Steven Dove (guitar), Ross Hall (drums) and Nicholas Jones (guitar) recently played successful shows at East End Live, Green Man Festival and were invited by Radio 1s Huw Stephens to play The Social in London. The band are now set to perform at The Lexington, London for the launch of their single 'I Was A Streetlight' with more dates set to be announced in the very near future.
"a lugubrious tale of survival in the face of an increasingly destructive Mother Nature, told like Nick Cave reciting a ghost story to small children over a gothy, bluesy guitar burr" -Pitchfork
"Some of the quirkiest, boldest folk going… their production is saucy as hell. Get stuck in." -Metro
