‘The Steps’ video is made from a discarded vacation photo album found at a Wildlife Recue shop in Vancouver, Canada. The photographs (clearly taken in the 70’s) of ships, sea creatures, lovers and a lakeside cabin are collaged together with home footage of my pet fish and shadows. Video by Melanie Coles.
On Tuesday 16th July A Grave With No Name will return with a new album titled Whirlpool on Lefse Records. Recorded over the course of a year at Holy Mountain Studios in London, Whirlpool is an album of contrasting beauty, from the hushed lullaby of ‘Bones’ and the piano-led curtain call ‘Balloons’, to the euphoric glee of ‘Origami’ and the album’s opening song ‘Aurora’, which glides so perfectly with a sense of subtle romanticism.

The venture from bedroom to recording studio has encouraged a more collaborative approach to constructing songs, with a host of musicians contributing to the album including Linda Jarvis (Echo Lake), Akiko Matsuura (Comanechi) and Alanna McArdle (Ides).

Whirlpool completes a narrative trilogy for A Grave With No Name - a trilogy that began in 2009 with the release of Mountain Debris (Lefse/No Pain In Pop), and continued with 2011’s Lower (Boiled Egg). It’s a narrative that confronts the theme of loss, something which could be considered a well trodden path within popular music, but Alex Shields has managed to mine his own distinctive voice, tracing a delicate fissure in the emotional radiography of longing to spellbinding effect. And in Whirlpool he has created his most accomplished and self assured work to date.
