Album review: Gravenhurst

The Ghost in Daylight

Given the number of LPs under his belt (six), it’s odd that Nick Talbot’s – aka Gravenhurst’s – star hasn’t brightened more corners. But then, the singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer seems to prefer the shadows. ‘The Ghost in Daylight’ is aptly named – a haunting record realised in soft greys and sepia, with the odd flash of bright white. By turns sweetly mournful and malevolent, it mixes acoustic guitar work with electronics, moving through wyrd/psych folk, pastoral pop, drone and ambient glitch with impressive mastery. A magnificent slow burner.
