Track of the Day: Grievous Bodily Calm “Mosaic” (2020)

Grievous Bodily Calm

They have one of my favourite band names and they’re back with a new single. Perth’s Grievous Bodily Calm are releasing “Mosaic” today. 

Written and conceived during the coronavirus shutdown, “Mosaic” was primarily written in the studio. It was born out of experimentation: “We wanted to experiment with our writing process by delaying jamming as a means of creating material which allowed for the direction of the tune to shift widely.”

The single follows on from the band’s previous single, “Sync Step”, and continues their quality streak. The band were recent nominees for WAM’s Song of the Year prize in the Electronic category. Whilst their work has been championed both at home and abroad. 

It’s often pretty difficult to pin GBC down to one genre. And “Mosaic” is no different. Whatever genre you want to place it in, it hits the mark though. It’s bright, bold and such a joy to listen to. It’s the sound of a band at the top of their game, with the group’s collective creative chemistry laid out for all to hear. 

To celebrate the release of “Mosaic” the band are also dropping a performance clip, filmed live at Rada Studios, Perth. Check it out below.

“Mosaic” is out today. You can find Grievous Bodily Calm on Facebook and Instagram.

The band are launching the single with a show at Barbes in Perth tomorrow night. More details available HERE. Pre-sale tickets sold out, but there will be limited tickets available on the door. So make sure you get down early!
