"John Grant is addictive… You just want more and more." – clashmusic.com
American John Grant and his Icelandic band pump out new wave, electronica, industrial rock and pastoral chamber-pop that hits your inner Viking.
Wrung out of hard and fast living, Grant’s songs are intense, witty, beautiful and brutally honest. Woven together with utterly gorgeous melodies, an angelic voice, electronica, rock and disco straight out of the 70s, Grant’s show is as varied, monstrous and majestic as the glaciers of Reykjavik, the place he now calls home.
A man of many musical personas, Grant is impossible to pigeon hole. For 10 years he was frontman of alt-rock band The Czars. A soaring solo career has lead to collaborations with Sinead O’Connor, Goldfrapp and Elton John, and in October 2015 he released his third album, Grey Tickles, Black Pressure to much critical acclaim.
With onstage stories packed with humour, honesty and generosity, John Grant's live shows melt the iciest of hearts. Come find out why he's so cool.
