about

'A beautiful melodious and uplifting atmospheric five song gem' Artrock magazine

'GRICE still understands that pop music can be a vast edifice of warm, beautiful shapes, rather than a disposable prefab. It will appeal to fans of Japan and Tears For Fears, especially as Grice is a distinctive, ambitious vocalist. PROG magazine 2018

‘Mining a seam of Brit melancholic classy late ’80s synth-pop while adding his own song writing flare to the mix, and coming up trumps is GRICE’s stock in trade’ The Progressive Aspect

‘Art-Rock tunes that breathe introspection, travelling in and out of his innermost thoughts’ The Progressive Rock Files

The Grey of Granite Stone is a cocktail rich with haunting vocal harmonies and uplifting art rock songs with a dash of experimental sonic ambience.The closing piece ‘Glass Séance’ features GRICE at his most experimental playing a self-created glass armonica summoning the spirit of a summer past.

Track Name: Change my World (album version)
Change my World

Nothing's going to change my world
no one's going to find me
everything is going to plan
everything is easy
everything I tried went wrong

Nothing's going to tame my world
no one purify me
everything is going to plan
everything is, what everything is

I couldn't see
it's just you and me
Alone
Track Name: Spirit Level
Spirit Level

You hide and I will come and seek it
the pieces to the jigsaw puzzle
as tragic as the summer that's gone

then it's over too soon
are you going so soon
it was going so well

now and then you find it has no meaning
my spirit level shuttered now
the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle

let it flow, on the surface of the water
we're here for but an hour
then it's faded away

are you going so soon
it was going so well, well, well

let if flow on the surface of the water
we are here for but an hour
then it's fading away

are you going so soon
it was going so well
Track Name: Miss your Love
Miss your Love

when the winter days are dead
blow the dust from in my head
when the winter leaves you cold
that was the rain

winter bird will have his song
tell the night the day is gone
every memory blows me cold
showered and shamed

I miss your love
I kiss my love
I kissed you love

if a song is worth a lot
would I give her all I got
change the grey of granite stone
would that be the same

winter bird will have his song
tell the night the day is gone
every memory blows me cold
showered and shamed

I miss your love
I kissed my love

I miss your lover in the winter time
I kiss my love in the summer time

I kissed my love
Track Name: Cry
Cry

Begging you and begging me
count us out in two's and three's
4 & 20 years, is it nothing left but tears
a higher love - but painful, shameful
Cry - I won't cry

Finding out, it's time to shout
nothing - makes me feel this way
nothing but love

As she turns her gaze
do we count the days
something in the way that she's talking
do I stay

Anchored for the day

You don't have to cry
