Gliding soulfully atop cosmic synth washes and a driving beat , 'Maat Mons' marks the auspicious return of Te Whanganui-a-Tara songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and award-winning film composer Grayson Gilmour. He's announced his first new solo album in six years Holding Patterns will be out on 3rd November via Flying Nun, sharing elegantly crafted, hand-manipulated stop motion visuals for the lead single, directed by Jesse Taylor Smith and made with support from NZ On Air — featuring a cast of contributors including percussionist extraordinaire Cory Champion (Clear Path Ensemble) and Gilmour's So So Modern bandmate Aidan Leong. Arising from improvisational sessions and featuring stylish cover artwork by Bryce Wymer, Gilmour's fourth solo long player is available for preorder today on a swiftly selling-out variety of limited edition coloured vinyl (red, blue, yellow or black). He explained taking an all-encompassing, macro view of reality with 'Maat Mons'...

“‘Maat Mons’ existential / cosmic wonder runs amok! Sometimes the seemingly interconnected nature of everything takes hold of my imagination in a song like this — how else can I explain writing about the astral plane, life cycles, our devastation of earth, and name it after the highest volcano on planet Venus? Think of it as the musical equivalent of a film like Everything, Everywhere All At Once — creating music is how I find myself in, and make sense of the universe.”

'Holding Patterns' is out on Friday 3rd November via Flying Nun — limited edition coloured vinyl LP preorders available HERE.
