Grayson Gilmour has announced a brand new album, Holding Patterns — his first full-length release in over six years, is due out on the 3rd November 2023 and will be available digitally, and on a range of limited edition coloured vinyl; red, blue, yellow or black.

Grayson Gilmour is an award-winning song writer, film score composer and performer. He has toured internationally as both a solo artist, and part of the post-punk outfit So So Modern, releasing works on labels all around the world. Following his previous albums No Constellation (2010), Infinite Life! (2014), and Otherness (2017), the upcoming Holding Patterns album is Grayson Gilmour’s fourth full-length release.

Curious to work with different instrumentation, Grayson Gilmour ensured that there is practically no guitar on Holding Patterns. Any conventional piano or key parts were eventually rearranged into winds, strings or “weird synth textures”. Consequently, Holding Patterns is the artist’s most collaborative album to date. Improvisation was encouraged in most of the recording sessions with collaborators – the instrumental ‘Holding Patterns’ was actually completely improvised and re-assembled in the studio. Furthermore, the more people he invited into the album; the more enjoyable it became – which perhaps explains why there are so many contributors. 

Please note that Holding Patterns is currently not in store but is with our local supplier.

Most of the time it takes around 2-5 days from the time you place the order for the item to arrive here and be sent out but it can take longer if there are any delays.
