premiere: listen to Grouper’s quietly devastating new song “Driving”

GROUPER GRID OF POINTS

We are honored to share another devastating song from Grouper‘s forthcoming LP Grid of Points, out later this month on Kranky. Liz Harris has said that the new album was inspired by “the idea that something is missing or cold”, adding, “The intimacy and abbreviation of this music allude to an essence that the songs lyrics speak more directly of. The space left after matter has departed, a stage after the characters have gone, the hollow of some central column, missing.” Nowhere is this idea more evident than on the profoundly haunting “Driving“, Harris’ inimitable voice and skeletal piano lingering like a ghost inhabiting the moments of silence, simple and sparse, but moving and poignant in ways that are hard to articulate. It is, in part, this uncanny use of space and the indescribable fleeting nature of her music that make Grouper such a special, singular artist, and one of our favorites of all time. Grid of Points is out April 27th.
