If it feels like burgeoning producer duo GRUMBY reappeared to release a stellar song less than a week ago, it’s because GRUMBY did in fact do that. Thankfully. Several days later and the two artists return with another by their side, one Heavy x Mellow, for “Sippin’ Cris On The Starship Titanic.” The lackadaisical record is laid-back, a step away and level down from what we’re used to hearing from the song’s anchoring act. It’s also true to its title — an elegant ride on a beastly vessel in the nighttime, Cristal at the ready and not a worry in the world — so we’re all for it. This steady stream of music all but assures a project release on the horizon for GRUMBY (fingers crossed).
The seemingly mysterious Heavy x Mellow is what I believe to be the moniker of one individual fella with a handful of tracks and a knack for atmospherics. He can sing, produce, play the guitar and he may or may not have once recorded under the name of Evv. In any case, his talents are a welcomed addition to those of GRUMBY.
I can’t imagine you suffered through those words of mine before pressing play. But if you were a good sport, exercised some patience/goodwill and read this little writeup, reward yourself by floating off into wonderland to the tune of the most fantastically titled track of the fall (see above).
