David Gray today releases a new video to accompany ‘Accumulates’, which features on his critically acclaimed twelfth studio album, Skellig, now available across physical CD & vinyl formats via Laugh a Minute Records /AWAL Recordings. Read our review here.
Gray likens it to A Chomsky-trope about how things just kind-of seep into you, and then the next thing you know, you’re making a decision that is abhorrent (or would have been). But under the current pretext seems a reasonably sane thing to do.
Hypnotic and beautiful, Gray’s voice hasn’t sounded this good in so long. The simple percussive set up and that repetitive motif on the guitar, allow his expressive voice to really grab hold. This is a Gray who’s maybe mature and calm but still on top form when it comes to writing beautiful melodies and heartfelt lyrics.
