You Are All I See
Pat Grossi records as Active Child and where I have found Kanye West and Bon Iver’s versions of confessional songwriting to be overhyped and underwhelming I love the hypnotic spell cast by Grossi as both singer and songwriter. Beguiling song constructions – think Sigur Ros and The Album Leaf – and a tremulous tenor that will polarise audiences has me absolutely hooked.
I fell in love with this album on first listen and I can’t put it down, can’t hang up, can’t step away. Active Child has created a glitch-pop masterpiece, taking writing and delivery that could rival The Magnetic Fields and placing it inside a wash of electronica balladry.
Lovely, haunting, fascinating music.
