Wellington/Pōneke-based multi-instrumentalist Grayson Gilmour releases his latest single ‘Day Moon’ and announces an album release tour in December. Last month, he shared the news about Holding Patterns, his first full-length release in over six years, due out November 3rd via Flying Nun Records.

‘Day Moon’ explores the idea of checking in and out in a world of constant change and shifting moods. With a driving beat by Olivia Campion (Yumi Zouma) and Cory Champion (Clear Path Ensemble, Borrowed cs), the dream percussion duo on the new record, this synth-laden track showcases gorgeous vocals from US-based artist Sandu Ndu (aka Sandra Lawson-Ndu from the band Bells Atlas) and backing vocals from Lontalius’ Eddie Johnston. Grayson shares his inspiration for the track, saying, “I love the duality of seeing the moon during the day – natural, yet strangely out of context – beautiful, but gloomy at the same time. In a way it gives me some reassurance that two worlds coexist – we all have our ups and downs, but just like day and night, they’re simply phasing in and out.”

About the collaboration, Grayson adds, “I met Sandu Ndu years ago in Wellington, and have kept in touch ever since. She’s a great vocalist and lyricist, and I’m a big fan of her band Bells Atlas, so I knew shed work wonders on ‘Day Moon’. The colloboration with Sandra and Eddie took place entirely online; we were never in the same room once.”
Always aspiring for music video weirdness, Grayson combines motion capture, digital animation, and AI video prompting for the ‘Day Moon’ visuals. Performances are blended with 3D textures and transformed by an AI model, prompted to imagine ‘a galactic coral reef’. The result A surreal underwater scene reminiscent of a hallucinogenic sea anemone serenading an otherworldly cosmic entity – why not embrace the extraordinary!

Holding Patterns is out on the 3rd November 2023 via Flying Nun Records and will be available digitally, and on a range of limited edition coloured vinyl; red, blue, yellow or black.
