“Get to Know” (feat. KBY)
words by tom johnson
With a prolificacy in elegance, London-via-Berlin producer GRIP TIGHT today shares more sublime electro-pop on beautiful new track “Get To Know“, which arrives as the lead track – and one half – of a new digital single, which is released on August 4th and follows on from last year’s debut EP, which marked out Benjamin Gregory as a one of these shores most promising new talents.
Working here with KBY (of both Peggy Sue and the Deep Throat Choir), “Get To Know” is another sumptuous composition, similar to the way that Deptford Goth can inject genuine atmosphere in to otherwise stylistic and synthetic worlds. Led by tender keys and clipped beats the track slowly grows in to life, a monochrome world gently lit by the rising sun, as little dashes of instrumentation are brought in to the mix, the vocals too seemingly growing in stature as KBY’s accompanying voice shifts the mood once more.
Measured but always captivating, “Get To Know” adds further weight to GRIP TIGHT’s already simmering reputation – and we’re very pleased to unveil the new track today. Check it out below.
