Grand Salvo - She Woke At Three With A Thumping Heart

Grand Salvo - She Woke At Three With A Thumping Heart
Grand Salvo has established himself as a songwriter of unique heart and soul with a depth of lyricism matched by a warm but widescreen musical vision. 2009’s ‘Soil Creatures’ sealed his reputation, being his most stark and concise statement yet. With ‘Slay Me In My Sleep’, Mann has crafted a song cycle similar to his epic fairytale from 2008, ‘Death’. An exploration of time and memory, it is a tale of star-crossed lovers. A delinquent boy breaks into an old woman’s home and discovers an antique photo of a girl, instantly falling in love. When he returns again for the photo the old woman is waiting, and so it begins. . .
Set to expansive and joyous instrumentation, ‘Slay Me In My Sleep’ is a lavishly decorated and unabashed melodrama. Intricate percussion, harp, recorder and woodwind play to the quick, restless pulse of youth, while in sparer settings cello, gentle guitar and delicate piano reflect the melancholy of old age and longing.
After the masterful ‘Soil Creatures’, Paddy Mann has once again extended himself on ‘Slay Me In My Sleep’, telling a tale of strange love with vivid detail, whimsy and beauty, in the special way only he knows how.
