Pat Grossi’s first substantial body of work since his debut long player You Are All That I See was released earlier this month, marking the welcome re-emergance of Active Child after an intense period of touring.
The Rapor EP – named for the mountaintop LA home studio where it was written – features star support from Mikky Ekko and Ellie Goulding. It may well be Grossi’s most accomplished work to date and its closing minutes offer something a of a follow up to first record signature cut “Hanging On”. The capture of emotional turmoil, knife-edge euphoria and fragile heartbreak on ”Evening Ceremony” sees a holistic approach to songwriting and production in perfect balance.
Performing the song for Best Fit, Grossi tapped into that same emotion and the result is a truly jaw-dropping experince; not so much a session take but a revealing and enriching companion piece to the studio version; watch above.
The Rapor EP is out now.
