FORMERLY a member of Glasgow fuzz-pop outfit Tongue Trap, Glasgow-based singer-songwriter Kim Grant is now piling all her creative energy into her new solo project Raveloe. Today marks the release of her exquisite debut EP ‘Notes and Dreams’ on the prolific Olive Grove Records and it’s a mesmerising listen.
Oscillating between hushed folk sounds and more dynamic, fuzzed-up arrangements, Grant’s endearing vocals shine throughout as she strikes a lovely balance between the atmospheric and cathartic.
Evoking comfort and devastation in equal measure, Grant says of the project ‘”Through my music I want to make something relatable and share honestly but also create a space that is transportive, atmospheric and at times cathartic. Connecting with the listener is really important to me as well as exploring my inner and outer surroundings. I weave my past experiences with present observations and thoughts, and I hope to take who ever is listening on a journey. ‘On a mountain, in a city, in a dream, through the window’, Raveloe is where I pour my heart out and explore what it is to be alive through music.”
