Grim Town

    Soak Grim Town CD      SOAK release the much-anticipated second album. Grim Town follows the success of SOAKs multi-prize-winning debut album Before We Forgot How To Dream, and an extraordinary period of invention and self-discovery for the still-just-22-year-old Derry native. The unique but universal world of Grim Town is tantalisingly introduced today in new single Knock Me Off My Feet - a love letter to the lawlessness and freedoms of small-town culture, as well as its more claustrophobic, cut-you-down-to-size qualities. Its about the idea too, says Bridie that you can be the best person to yourself, and the worst person to yourself, a theme which is explored intensely across SOAKs ambitious, eclectic and brilliantly brave second album, Grim Town.  The central premise of Grim Town, says SOAK, is a dystopia that Ive created in my brain: me on the inside, processed into a pretend location. The way I could wrap my head around a lot of what I was going through was to make it feel like something quite physical and real. Once I had the idea of the album being an actual location, exploring the dynamics of this town and what it would look or sound like felt like the right way to give my mental state a personality. So if debut album Before We Forgot How To Dream was conceived as a time-capsule of innocence, vividly capturing those moments in adolescence when anything felt possible, Grim Town perhaps examines the reality: on what happens next after you enter adulthood (but actually feel more in crisis than ever) and the world around you isnt what was promised to you or your generation. A record about getting lost that you can, also, truly get lost in, Grim Town arrives as inspired by the audio-visual environmentalism of Pink Floyds The Wall as the production of Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene or Phoebe Bridgers. With unflinching honesty, Bridie tackles everything from long-distance love, depression, divorce and social anxiety to the changing modern landscape (sexually, politically, emotionally). And its accepting the jumble of emotions which make you you that emerges as the ultimate message of Grim Town, with its suitably placeless universe in which everybodys personal Grim Town looks different, but everybodys matters.
