Mall Grab has had a pretty rapid ascension having gone from Youtube breakout to playing nearly every club around the world – not bad for a dude from the coastal spot of Newcastle.
Seems like there was a bit going on behind the scenes but for fans bloody good reason to pop out a new EP – this time though under his original name Jordon Alexander, J explains;
These songs were written over the last couple months of what was one of, if not the most turbulent, formative and important years of my life.
I thought they were the perfect introduction to all the new material I have coming in 2019, as Mall Grab, and Jordon Alexander.
The EP has two very different sides, with the A-side a rippling electro stamper riddled with drums while the B-side is a slower, more ploddy emotive burner maybe reflecting the ups and downs of constant touring.
Mall Grab explains it best though;
“More Than I Ever Thought I Could” is an electro-esque excursion which has been serving as a last track in many of my sets and I’ve been waiting to share since it was recorded. The b side “The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter” named after Carson Mcullers’ 1940 novel, samples the film adaptation and is a melancholy instrumental journey recalling endless hours spent daydreaming looking out train and car windows around the globe.
Those wanting to catch him can head along to Days Like This where he’ll be playing alongside Four Tet, Denis Sulta, Tourist and more.
