Emil Erstrand and Nils Nygårdh, aka Stockholm’s Grapell, are back in the game with a new EP Love Chamber. This new release marks a change in working method for the duo, who told Aftonbladet that “before we usually only began to work together at the production stage, but recently we’ve gone back to playing music like it’s normally played in rehearsal rooms – through actualy playing together”. The results of the new methods will be seen on Love Chamber, and we’ve just got our first taste of it in ‘Some Places’
‘Some Places’ is a song that seems locked into the groove of a different time, harking back to the plastic soul of Young Americans with its lazily unfolding saxophone lines. Matilda Mård of Many Voices Speak is recruited on guest vocals to create a slow-burning duet, one loaded with old-school charm and dusky glamour. Love Chamber is out on Strangers Candy on September 30th.
