Grantura “In Dreams And Other Stories”

Another record that we fell in love with recently was the Grantura album “In dreams and other stories”. They are from Camberwell and create a unique blend of folk/Americana that is entirely their own. The critics are already raving about the album, but it still remains a “best kept secret” … their already critically acclaimed album is set against Grantura’s metropolitan backdrop and delicately delivered through pastoral insturmentation and 3 part male harmonies, Mandolins, Violin, Lap Steel, Banjo, Zither and even Sitar.

“Great tune -filled pop, driven by country guitars and with harmonies that have you seeking a ball that bounces across the screen so you can join in” Mojo

“As well as the airy, sun-dappled vocals, they’ve got strong tunes such as In Dreams and the rippling Waves” Q

“They sound like the more rueful musings of Teenage Fanclub. A solid foundation of acoustic guitars, mandolin, monstrous tunes and delirious harmonies.”  Music Week
