RETURN OF THE RIOT GRRRL!
Erasing Grace publish Debut EP
Former music festival director and published poet, Anna Grace Du Noyer is 'standing on the shoulders of Riot Grrls!' heading up Brit based band Erasing Grace with a stunning debut EP, Hurricane Hill.
Du Noyer admits transforming some of her 2020 published poetry collection, Fear is a Liar, into a 3-track gloriously gritty grunge EP.
With themes of oppression and resistance, that fans of the frontwoman's second published Poetry book will be familiar with, she truly captures the zeitgeist of her 1990s youth. Du Noyer intends no mistake in this no-holds-barred translation of the biographical stories.
Taking on a life of their own the words are now multi-faceted and complex; a dreamy mix of melancholy and psychedelic alternative rock, underpinned by 90s grunge roots.
Former music festival director Anna Grace comes into her own as co-producer, on lead and backing vocals, and rhythm guitar throughout. Expect goosebump-building Mazzy Star-like ethereal harmonies matched by dulcet Patty Smith-esque growls
Erasing Grace was conceived as a band in 2020, in Liverpool, England, UK during the Coronavirus pandemic - providing an opportunity for international collaboration.
The band is made up of a changing dynamic of renowned musicians on guitar, keys, drums and strings including former Black Seasons Lead guitarist Daniel Du Noyer and Argentina based multi instrumentalist, Renzo Calma of Buenos Aires heavy metal outfit, Mantra.
Erasing Grace unveil a debut record that jars into the canon of rock misogyny in only the way a riot grrrl can. Stomach twisting, tribal drums and heavy distortion is laced with tormented harmonies - telling a tale of feminine disaffection, furious vulnerability and painful alienation.
This isn't the cliqued woman in rock with a barrel of bravado and force-fed hedonism; this record spells out feelings of feminist disaffection and alienation. Euphorically unapologetic. A riot of powerful bass lines and haunting harmonies... this debut music release is decent!
EP Hurricane Hill is available from 1st May 2021 on Spotify, Amazon and iTunes
