Tuesday, May 22 The Local presents Gravenhurst, Sweet Lights 7.30pm adv £11
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, with starkly acoustic songs resting alongside densely layered pieces constructed from mellotrons, optigans and antique synthesizers. Over the course of six startling and critically acclaimed albums, Nick Talbot has developed and retained a unique identity across multiple genres.

“I like the idea of listening to Gravenhurst as being to some degree an active rather than passive experience. The songs offer clues and form maps to a place that is partly given, and partly open to the listener to construct as they wish.”
