Grand Salvo - In the Shade

Grand Salvo - In the Shade
Sea Glass is Grand Salvo’s seventh album, and his Mistletone debut. This richly allegorical album explores how a single, vivid memory can shape who we are; resurfacing and altering our thoughts and recollections as the years go by. The album’s very structure is an approximation of how such a memory is forged; each song radiates out from a seed memory which unfolds like a lotus jewel in Field of Flowers, the second-last song and the only “straight” narrative song of this remarkable album. The album then closes with Standing On The Sea, a dreamlike journey on the beach that uncovers “a shard of sand smoothed emerald glass / and a change in the light”, layering the dreams of childhood and the memories of adulthood into a woozy contemplation of eternity and the cyclic, ever evolving nature of memory.

Sea Glass was recorded using a number of non-western instruments including qanun (Persian dulcimer), kora (African harp), koto (Japanese stringed instrument) and Indian percussion, with a heady female chorus (Laura Jean, Lisa Salvo, Hannah Cameron, Michelle Surowiec) reprised throughout the album, woven through the narrative like a recurring dream. Like all Grand Salvo’s albums, it has already received lavish critical acclaim.

About this track...

Grand Salvo's song "In the shade" is about the power of childhood, and the vulnerability of children. How luck and circumstance can gift us either cherished and sustaining memories or irreversibly wound us. Its also about its loss, whether its taken early through fate or later through the passing of time. Mostly its a celebration of childhoods irresistible magic.
