Go Gracious was dragged, kicking and screaming, into existence
once their half written ideas had become stadium sized, with razor sharp pop
hooks delivered over a fiery growl of heavy guitars and dance beats. Imagine if
Dragons did it, yeah?
Morris and Dee first met at
a show in Kent where Dees’ performance prompted Morris to declare: “You’re
a great front-man, but you need a better band”.
Morris told Dee he should
join forces with someone with an ear for the anthemic, and so he did, although
with doubts about one man’s ability to replace an entire band. But when modern
technology collides with irrepressible will, miracles and wonders can also
Go Gracious take inspiration
from everything they’ve listened to and loved.
With a string of stirring, undeniable singles ready to come out on
The Animal Farm label, they should be the only thing you listen to and love.
The first of which, ‘Solid Influence’, is a stomping piano driven indie-rock
instant classic with a superbly cheeky video featuring a great dancing routine
on the London underground.
