Michael A Grammar – The Day I Come Alive

Once from Nottingham, but now based in Brighton, Michael A Grammar have announced details of their second EP, and posted up a track to tease us. Random Vision is a four track EP coming out on Melodic Records on 27th January, and will be released on download and 180mg heavyweight purple vinyl.

Putting a record out on purple vinyl is a bit of a clue as to the band’s psychedelic sound. There’s also the fact that they’ve taken from a Broadcast song. Their biog describes them as “the alien lovechild of too many sunny weekends spent indoors listening to Joy Division and Radiohead records”, but to these ears the closest reference we can hear for The Day I Come Alive – the first track on the EP – is Blur’s She’s So High, with an early nineties sound halfway between baggy and shoegaze, with an anthemic chorus. You can listen below, and pre-order the EP on the Melodic website.
