Stunningly Beautiful Track from Gravenhurst

Sadly, I’m not really sure how many people out there in the Internet world are aware of Nick Talbot and the incredible music he’s been making under the Gravenhurst moniker.  In case you haven’t, then let this be an introduction to one of the songwriters that will go on to be part of your life for the duration. His latest effort, The Ghost in Daylight, will be released by Warp Records on May 1st, and I’m in love with this sprawling single by Talbot.  It’s quiet and subtle, until you get this burst of creativity near the end of the song.  It’s the sort of song that begs you to listen through and through, and that’s the kind of music you’ll get with Gravenhurst.  Hope you like your new favorite band!
