Gravenhurst Announces New Album The Ghost In Daylight Out May 1

Gravenhurst is the work of songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Nick Talbot from Bristol, England. The Ghost In Daylight is his most sonically diverse work yet, building upon his brand of gloomy folk with starkly acoustic songs resting alongside densely layered pieces. The album’s lead single "The Prize" is a dark meditation on recurring Gravenhurst themes of compulsion, degradation and the possibility of transcendence, and contains some of Nick’s finest lyrics to date.
 
Conjured from disparate ingredients, Gravenhurst's roots lie in the melodic noise of My Bloody Valentine, the lush vocal harmonies of Simon and Garfunkel, the alchemical guitars of Richard Thompson and Johnny Marr, and the widescreen ambient visions of Brian Eno.

Over the course of five startling and critically acclaimed releases, Talbot has developed and retained a unique identity across multiple genres. The inability to pigeonhole his sound is what made his music appealing to fans of former tourmates as diverse as Animal Collective, Broadcast, Explosions in the Sky, and Belle & Sebastian. Now five years on from his last album, Gravenhurst is back and ready to pull listeners into his world.
