Maven Grace release new single ‘Darkness’

Maven Grace release their new single ‘Darkness’ on October 17th. A song of loss and grief sung from the perspective of a young mother, this is nuanced, transcendental pop at its best. Listen to ‘Darkness’ here:

Between them, the members of the band have supported everyone from Radiohead to Siouxsie Sioux and Noel Gallagher, and have just returned from a short tour of China, which saw them play alongside members of Beijing’s hardcore underground music scene next to a Lama Temple just off Tiananmen Square. Songwriter Henry Jack explains, “Darkness was partly recorded with players at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing after we became transfixed with the sound of the erhu. The session was a thrilling musical adventure, and gave the song the otherworldliness it needed.”

This summer the band’s standout performance at Standon Calling didn’t go unnoticed either, with none other than headliner Bryan Ferrywriting to them afterwards to praise their unique sound. Goldfrapp were similarly impressed, and the legendary electronic band is now working on its own remix of DarknessMaven Grace are also collaborating with legendary creative director Mary Fellowes, who has worked with everyone from The Kills to Adele, Saorsie Ronan and Lena Dunham. Fellowes’ groundbreaking approach to contemporary style is the perfect complement to the band’s own unique aesthetic.

Darkness is the follow-up to Maven Grace’s previous singles ‘Innocent Dreams‘ and ‘Something Strange‘, which picked up support fromSpotify’s New Music Friday and reached the UK Viral top 50 as well as earning online tastemaker support from 1883 MagazineLouder Than War and Songwriting Magazine to name but a few. With its dynamic, evocative soundscapes, and hauntingly cinematic atmosphere,‘Darkness’ would sit easily on the soundtrack to ‘Lost In Translation’ or ‘Drive’.
