Eric Contractor - Bunny & Grudge

Eric Contractor

Bunny & Grudge minds a little of ’60s French chanson duets as Sylvana Joyce joins Eric Contractor to deliver a track of woven and harmonised vocals which melt, like a butter on a summers day, in to the soft brushes of electronica and instrumentation creating a tender and romantic moment to share with another gazing up at the twinkling vastness of clear starlight protecting one another from the harshness of the world outside.

Although soft, the song is not slushy, as inside the heart warming melodies lays a dialogue of the self-doubts and confusion that arise in relationships with intent and experience oft laying in opposition, yet optimistic these internalised-fragilities can be overcome given communication and the will of both parties.

The most recent track to surface is Working Dude – a song which wraps muscular limbs around the listener with teasing vocal which straightens between tenor and the upper reaches of baritone, whilst also arching on towards the lower end of countertenor and for those who have connected with the site over the years – baritone – even if it only dips a toe part way down the scale it is likely to pique my interest and here is a case in point.

It is rare I spend so long rambling about the voice – with the instrumentation, percussion and where relevant, synthesis, more usually taking the foreground of features – so you will already be attuned that Eric Contractor has a voice that captivates.
