The Irish alt-rock band The Grey Merchant release the LP Avenue De Rennes on the 15th.
Delivering a broad remit of ideas in the nine track, just over half an hour, album (available on bandcamp) The Grey Merchant are nonetheless able to keep the listener engaged with the variations of tempo, texturing and temperament as the music flows through dark dichotomy, fulminating fury, melancholic meanderings and more – resultingly leaving the audience streaked in an absorbing mirage of their own interpretation.
Sadly I am not permitted to share my pick of the release with you at this juncture – on release do keep an ear out for the penultimate song, an achingly beautiful composition, The Exchange.
The middle track is also the title of the album – Avenue De Rennes.
