'Pieces' Out Now

Grasscut - 'Pieces' Out Now

Grasscut's new single Pieces is out today.

Grasscut are a band uniquely concerned with place, with location, with the physicality of the world around us and how we represent that physicality through stories, poems, maps, myths and, most of all, music. Each track on their second album, Unearth, is tied to a particular physical location. In the case of new single Pieces, that location is East London.

“In 2010, we did a gig in a metal container on the fringes of the Olympic site,” expalins Andrew Phillips, the composer, musician and chief driving force behind Grasscut. “This song is about the area being remixed, re-skinned, and repackaged, as well as about reinventing ourselves.” Epic and intimate, Pieces bashes hyperactive percussion up against r&b, folk and psychedelia to make something glossily modernistic yet strangely rooted, Phillips’ ear for melody at the very forefront of the tune.

The package is rounded out by the “M25” version of "Lights.” The album’s version of the tune is inspired by Margate’s mysterious shell grotto. This take is inspired, perhaps unsurprisingly, by the journey it took to get there. With Grasscut you’re always heading somewhere and the journey is never boring.

Pieces is available to download now from the Ninjashop.
