Silver Drop

Gregor Silver Drop 2018

by Gregor

Feature Records for the week beginning Mon 8 Oct 2018

This week’s feature record is Silver Drop, the debut album by young Melbourne pop eccentric Gregor.

Gregor was first heard via the 2016 cassette Thoughts & Faults on Chapter Music, which Stereogum described as “Talking Heads meets Trolls.”

Playful and idiosyncratic, the tape was the work of an artist still learning how to open up. Silver Drop takes the restless, inquisitive spirit of his music and applies it to his own interior emotional world. In short, love has entered the building, left its mark and Gregor will never be the same again. The artist himself says “Silver Drop is the result of a yearning to free myself from lyrical inhibitions that, in the past, saw me disguise my thoughts behind timid metaphors and hide my voice behind poor mixing, obnoxious effects and low volumes. I didn’t think of myself as a singer, but I wanted to.”

So alongside propulsive pop moments like ‘This Heat’ or ’Fishing Net’ there are also deep, unsparing reflections like ‘Revise Me’, ‘I’ll Prove It To You’ and the album’s stunning title track. Silver Drop is a remarkable record, about as touching as anything you’ve heard, and similarly striking for its musical adventurousness.

Listen to the title track 'Silver Drop' here now.
