It sounds like there is quite the interesting story behind Grado, the project of Michael Bloss, who currently lives in East Anglia and is making beautiful indie folk. According to his website, Bloss has spent the last six yearsliving in cities around Europe, and the name Grado comes from two cities in Italy and Spain that share the same title and influenced him greatly in his travels. This track, “Graveyard Shift” is an example of the kind of delicate blend of acoustic guitar and wispy vocals that Bloss channels into his craft. More than that, this song alludes to the excellent storytelling that you can expect on his self titled debut,Grado, which looks like comes out today. Take a listen and then go pick up that album.
