SLOW LEAVES

SLOW LEAVES - Enough About Me

VÖ                        : 24.11.2017

Kanada, Winnipeg. Aus den Demoaufnahmen die Grant Davidson aka SLOW LEAVES in seinem Keller aufnahm, entstanden mit der Unterstützung von Freunden  wie Jason Tait (Bahamas, Weakerthans), Rusty Matyas (Imaginary Cities, Sheepdogs) und Julie Penner (Broken Social Scene, Do Make Say Think) die 10 Songs die nun auf ENOUGH ABOUT ME zu hören sind. Poetische Lyrics, Musik die zwischen Indie-Elementen, Folk und Pop pendelt und eine Song fokusierte Stringenz die an glorreiche Alben aus den Siebzigern denken lässt, zeichnen das Album aus. Wohlklang in Tönen.

Nach drei Alben, die er unter seinem eigenen Namen aber ohne grösseren Aufwand in Kanada veröffentlichte, erschien dann 2014 das von der kanadischen Presse hochgelobte Album Beauty Is So Common unter dem Bandnamen SLOW LEAVES. Im Zentrum Grant Davidson.

“How Do I Say”, die erste Video Auskopplung aus dem aktuellen Album (ein fantastischen Video von den mit dem PRISM Preis ausgezeichneten Regisseuren  Ft. Langley, aka William Wilkinson and Oliver P.D. Brooks ) ist exemplarisch für das Album. “The song itself "was written in part with Richard Linklater’s film Before Sunrise in mind,” says Davidson. “It's a tragic love song that takes place at the moment two people meet, drawn by a magnetism greater than either can express with words. The tragic side is that they must part ways in the morning.”

ENOUGH ABOUT ME ist Tragik und großes Gefühl. Persönlich, reflektierend und doch beschwingt. Wohldosierter Optimismus.

O Ton Grant Davidson / Slow Leaves:“Most of the songs I write are reflections on my own life. I try to write honestly about my life and where I see myself in it. Sometimes this leads to some dark realizations and so I also usually try to put something positive in my songs as well, if anything to serve as a reminder to myself that things are often actually pretty good. I recorded a lot of the record myself in my basement with a very simple recording set-up. It was important for me to produce this record myself because I wanted to get at the ideas that would come about without the influence of others in the room. That said, the musicians who play on the record often brought their own ideas which certainly made the productions stronger. As a result, this album represents my most personal work to date.“
