News: Grand Salvo announces the release of his sixth album ‘Slay Me In My Sleep’
After gaining critical acclaim for five successful albums, Melbourne’s Grand Salvo, aka Paddy Mann has announced the release of his long awaited sixth album ‘Slay Me In My Sleep’.
Set to expansive and joyous instrumentation, ‘Slay Me In My Sleep’ is a lavishly decorated and unabashed melodrama.
Intricate percussion, harp, recorder and woodwind play to the quick, restless pulse of youth, while in sparer settings cello, gentle guitar and delicate piano reflect the melancholy of old age and ‘Slay Me In My Sleep’ was largely recorded and co-produced in Berlin by composer Nils Frahm, who has worked extensively with other singular artists such as Peter Broderick and Greg Haines. Frahm’s exquisite piano work appears throughout, alongside vocal contributions by Heather Woods Broderick, Laura Jean and Luluc’s Zoe Randell.
After the masterful ‘Soil Creatures’, Paddy Mann has once again extended himself on ‘Slay Me In My Sleep’, telling a tale of strange love with vivid detail, whimsy and beauty, in the special way only he knows
‘Slay Me In My Sleep’ is out 20th July on Preservation through Inertia.
