‘Right Moves’ is the first single from John Blek’s forthcoming album, ‘Digressions #2 Grounded’. A song to see us through the strangest of times.
Recorded at home in isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic. ‘Grounded’ is Blek’s effort to regain a sense of balance and purpose during this period of great uncertainty. It shows the artist drawing from a new well of sound, embracing synthesis, remote recording and electronic instruments for the first time. With the process being as integral to the message as the songs themselves, John wanted to demonstrate the sound of a world in the digital age while still maintaining his signature warm acoustic tones and reverence for the simple things in life.
This limited vinyl and CD album consisting of 10 new songs is the second release in his ‘Digressions’ series of records that started in May of 2020. Future releases in this series will consist of live recordings, conceptual pieces and other musical musings that diverge from his more characteristic sound.
‘Digressions #2 – Grounded’ will see limited vinyl (150 copies) and CD release on the 19th February via John’s own label We Are Rats Recordings (WARR). ‘Right Moves’ is released January 8th.
