Fluent in Grey came to life in 2014 when singer-songwriter Anna Marcella joined forces with producer/guitarist Simon Langford to create a new project that captures an alternative feel mixed in with elements of electronic and indie pop. The band have shared introductory track ‘Lost’ which was produced by award-winning multi-instrumentalist and mixer Brett Shaw (Daughter, Clean Bandit, Florence & The Machine), which you can hear/share below.
Debut taster track ‘Lost’ is available both to stream on Soundcloud and to watch with accompanying heart-wrenching video which brings the track even more to life:
The combination of Anna’s catchy melodies and soft vocal, paired with Simon’s edgy and ambient production, creates a beautiful sound that ebbs and flows between dark and light, giving weight to the name, Fluent in Grey.
Marco Italia brings in a heavy bass to compliment the atmospheric rhythm played by drummer Phil Page, producing a deep groove that sits perfectly underneath the atmospheric and catchy melodies.
The band will return to the studio in January to record their debut EP, set for release in spring 2015, and judging from their debut piece ‘Lost’, it’s going to be an outstanding record.
