You know what’s been missing from your life? The Glitch-folk-tronica band none other than GRASSCUT.
Recently signed to the renown Ninja Tune label, Grasscut consists of award winning film score composer Andrew Phillips and the multi-talented Marcus O’Dair, both reigning from the great county of Sussex, England. After starting with remixing the likes of Bonobo, Coldcut and Jaga Jazzist, they released their Debut album “1 Inch/1/2 Mile” spans many powerful moods created by ethereal stings, blips, atmospheric vocals, big beats and soaring synths. Their main influences (Brian Eno, Sigur Rós, Eskmo, Thom Yorke, Amon Tobin and Debussy) can be clearly heard whilst maintaining a distinct authenticity to their very unique sound. Their stand out track is the chaotic but hopefully epic “Muppet“, but don’t leave them at that as you would only be getting 1/9th of their oh so versatile repertoire.
Listen to: Muppet, High Down, Meltwater, Passing, The Keeper (Grasscut Bitter Peace Remix).
