  • Hall or Nothing :: News :: Grant Nicholas announces March 30th release of brand new mini-album
    then that s the key for me and I think those are the best songs I have had a lot of fun writing and recording Black clouds and have also found working as a solo artist certainly pushes you to bare your soul and find new ways of approaching things With many of the songs on Black Clouds written during the Yorktown Heights sessions there s continuity immediately evident especially with the inclusion of the track Joan of Arc on both records Black Clouds feels like a natural next step for Nicholas and ushers in more electronica to complement the timeless song writing and classic acoustic landscapes that were seen in force on Yorktown Heights I tried to make this album with a more old school almost classic 60 s 70 s sound and approach but also mixing it with some more modern sounds and textures to give it its own character and less of a straight retro feel I want these songs to work around a camp fire as well as on the Pyramid stage Grant also has extensive touring activity coming up in support of his sublime debut which will now also include a selection of songs from Black Clouds to complement the live set Following an overwhelming reaction to the Autumn 2014 tour Grant announced twelve more shows in the UK and Ireland with a European tour announced to precede the UK tour Yorktown Heights was Grant s first solo album and was released via his own label Popping Candy in late summer 2014 and largely self produced by Nicholas with additional production from Sam Miller and Brian Sperber Julian Casablancas Dinosaur Jr at Ansons Pocket Studio s in Yorktown Heights which eventually became inspiration for the album title Both Yorktown Heights and Black Clouds are by
