Add To Cart

"..very original and very exciting: the album ... might just be one of the most intriguing releases of the year." (For The Rabbit, UK)

Gris-de-Lin is a singer/songwriter & multi-instrumentalist from Bridport, Dorset and Sprung is her debut album. Her music is a heady mix of post-rock, blues and alt-folk peppered with warped electronics; the songs are narrative and lyrical.

The album was recorded in a nursery school, and saw her playing virtually all of the instruments herself – from guitars and synths to drums and saxophone. Working with producer/engineer Chris Hamilton (know for his work with Squarepusher/Torres/Kite-Base) she also drafted in Rob Ellis (P.J.Harvey/Anna Calvi) to play drums on several tracks.
