Following the success of his debut solo record Spooky Action, Paul Draper has announced details of a new single.
Grey House is a razor wired guitar prowl that recalls the experimental pop of Draper’s previous band - the iconic Mansun - at their very best. A very limited silver 7" single featuring exclusive new edits of Grey House and album track Who's Wearing The Trousers will be available in shops and online on 20th October via Kscope. It is available for pre-sale now.
Grey House is one of the stand-out tracks from Spooky Action, a record recentlydescribed by Prog as “full of howling at the gods emotional catharsis” and Uncut as “a growling electro-rock odyssey with… an impressive heft” (8/10). Spooky Action entered at No 19 in the UK album charts on release in August.
