Stream: H.Grimace share darkly mesmerising “Call It Out”

Call It OutLondon based four piece H.Grimace have shared their new single "Call It Out", taken from their upcoming debut album Self Architect.

Existing comfortably at the intersection between post-punk and shoegaze, "Call It Out" is a darkly refined number. Tightly controlled guitars and mesmerising vocals come together to produce a track that instantly grabs your attention.

The band explain the meaning behind the single saying, "It was initially a response to a friend who had been drugged at a party but couldn't name the perpetrator. But generally, the song was about naming something you think should be said but are afraid to say."

Self Architect follows on from 2015’s sold out "I Am Material" tape and the critically acclaimed "Royal Hush" 7" which came out last year.

Singer Hannah Gledhill's vocals and lyrics are self-reflective and question contemporary social pressures to do with image, work, power and our connection to the land. The collaboration in the album's opening track "2.1 Woman" features poet and artist Vivienne Griffin who critiques the constant pressure exerted on women to create better and better versions of themselves.

These new songs have been recorded with long-standing engineer and friend Rory Attwell and mixed by both Rory and Ben Greenberg, formerly of The Men and currently in Sacred Bones signed artist Uniform, who the band met and found an instant affinity with on their extensive US tour last year. H.Grimace will be bringing their live show to the UK this year.

Self Architect is out 7th April 2017 on Opposite Number.
