Star of a highly informative new AudioCulture retrospective feature by Nick Bollinger, Grayson Gilmour isn't resting on his laurels, launching what may be his most ambitious solo long player to date Holding Patterns on 3rd November via Flying Nun Records. Having played more than a thousand live shows as co-founder of So So Modern, the polymathic Te Whanganui-a-Tara songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and award-winning film composer has announced a four date album release tour, venturing to Aotearoa's main centres of Tāmaki Makaurau, Ōtautahi, Ōtepoti and the capital in early December.

Sealing the deal is an eye-zapping, amorphous digitally animated and AI-assisted video for Gilmour's free-flowing new single 'Day Moon', featuring guest vocals from Oakland artist Sandu Ndu (Bells Atlas), and backing vocals by Eddie Johnston (Lontalius, Race Banyon). Directed by Jesse Taylor Smith and Jacob Perkins / RDYSTDY and made with support from NZ On Air, experience the suboceanic psychedelic soul of 'Day Moon', preorder your copy of the limited coloured vinyl LP edition of Holding Patterns HERE, and don't miss Gilmour at the dates following — brought to you by 100% Good...

“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.

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 she'd work wonders on ‘Day Moon’. We collaborated exclusively online — a process mirrored in the backing vocal contributions from Eddie." — Grayson Gilmour
