Grieves just released his new album, Running Wild!
It’s been over three years since his last album, Winter & The Wolves, but Grieves has re-emerged with a modernized sound that is lush and intoxicating, pairing punchy drums with thick layers of synths and warm bass lines. Whether dark and moody, or bright and upbeat, Grieves smoothly navigates the new soundscape, penning verses that range from confessional to carefree.
Running Wild is comprised of 15-tracks recorded while bouncing between Seattle and Stockholm, with help from Swedish producer Chords (aka Jens Eric Resch Thomason). The record balances Grieves’ dueling impulses to have a good time while staying true to himself. It’s a kind of openness — both sonically and thematically — that he attributes to how and where the record was made.
