about

London-born, Art Rock musician GRICE returns with his second album Alexandrine, which builds on his highly-regarded debut album Propeller. His music has been described as ‘a challenging cocktail of electro-acoustic glitch, art-rock and avant-pop synthesis tempered into passionate and well-crafted songs.’



With GRICE taking centre-stage on guitars and vocals, Alexandrine features sonic innovator Richard Barbieri (Porcupine Tree, originally from UK electro pioneers Japan) on keyboards and as co-producer on a numbers of tracks. The 12-track album was mixed by Steve Jansen (Japan/Rain Tree Crow) who also lends his unique percussive input, tonalities and treatments to the work.

Reviews:

Alexandrine is an Art Rock gem - GRICE sounds like Grace. PROG magazine

Alexandrine is an album of well executed art pop, at complete ease with itself, and therefore benefits from having nothing to prove. Highly recommended. The Progressive Aspect

‘Pure magic. Utterly enchanting. “Alexandrine” is a definite Mammal album of the year contender. Grice, the composer, singer, musician and driving force behind the band, pours enormous amounts of emotion into his songs, and his vocal style is grippingly pensive and expressive’ 5/5 A Metal State of Mind
