A Sun Full and Drowning is the stunning debut album from London four-piece Grass House. The album was recorded at Monnow Valley Studios in Wales with producer Jim Anderson -- best known for his work with Cold Specks, The Twilight Sad, and 2:54. Featuring 10 tracks, the album includes new versions of the band's critically-acclaimed and sold-out singles "Spinning as We Turn" and "And Now for the Wild," plus their current single "I Was a Streetlight." With a sonic interest in the sound explorations of Brian Eno, and the more freaked-out Velvet Underground jams, as well as more contemporary influences such as The Walkmen, Crystal Stilts, Deerhunter, and Ducktails, yet through an unerring wish to create something progressive, the band have developed these influences into something unique and captivating. Taking inspiration from a wide breadth of places; including art, nature, society and the boundaries that cross between each, their self-titled brand of outsider pop refers back in part to the somewhat untrained outsider artists, who, working from their own tenets, were able to create something much more personal. The Grass House line-up of Liam Palmer (vocals), Steven Dove (guitar), Ross Hall (drums), and Nicholas Jones (guitar) recently played successful shows at East End Live, Green Man Festival, and were invited by Radio 1's Huw Stephens to play The Social in London. The band is now set to perform at The Lexington, London for the launch of their single "I Was a Streetlight" with more dates set to be announced in the very near future.
