Grails share second track “Pelham”
from forthcoming album, Chalice Hymnal
Released 17th February on Temporary Residence
Don’t miss Grails on their European tour!
Experimental psych-rock institution Grails have just shared a second track “Pelham” ahead of their first studio album in six years, Chalice Hymnal. The new track is more muscular but just as heady as the title track, “Chalice Hymnal” (issued last month), a visceral collusion of acid-psych, 20th century Western film scores, and jazz-infused prog.
Produced by the band over the past five years, Chalice Hymnal bears some of the European psych and experimental hip-hop production techniques of founding members Alex Hall and Emil Amos‘ other group, Lilacs & Champagne. Amos’ meditative metal band, Om, and longtime singer-songwriter project, Holy Sons, also naturally find their way into the Chalice cauldron. Rounding out their leaner line-up, co-founder Zak Riles (also of experimental kraut-psych trio, Watter) layers synths and programming into an electronic-prog hybrid that pushes Grails further into the deep end, displaying a profound resonance, both musically and emotionally.
Chalice Hymnal will be released 17th February via Temporary Residence.
