John Grant is addictive… You just want more and more – clashmusic.com
American John Grant and his Icelandic five-piece band pump out new wave, electronica, industrial rock and pastoral chamber-pop that hits your inner Viking, hard.
Wrung out of several hard-living lifetimes, Grant’s songs are intense, beautiful and brutally honest. Even more pleasing they’re witty, luscious and ironic. Woven together with utterly gorgeous melodies, an angelic voice, electronica, rock and disco straight out of the 70s, Grant’s show is as varied, monstrous and majestic as the glaciers of Reykjavik, the place he now calls home.
A man of many musical personas, Grant is impossible to pigeon hole. For 10 years he was frontman of alt-rock band The Czars. A soaring solo career has lead to collaborations with Sinead O’Connor, Goldfrapp, Biggi Veira, Ásgeir Trausti and Elton John. He’s fluent in German, Russian and is currently into Icelandic.
With between song tales packed with humour, honesty and generosity, it’s unsurprising his live shows melt the iciest of hearts. Come find out why he’s so cool.
