Gregor - A Song About Holding Hands

Gregor - A Song About Holding Hands
Young Melbourne pop eccentric Gregor was first heard via 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. Upcoming new album 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, and Gregor will never be the same again.

Silver Drop is about as touching as anything you’ve heard, and similarly striking for its musical adventurousness. Spacious and delicate, but peppered with acerbic pop moments and extended, loping grooves, the album draws together elements of the Durutti Column, Arthur Russell and The The, all filtered through Gregor’s increasingly personal vision.

Imagine if the solo albums of Holger Czukay from Can contained unstinting examinations of the soul, and you’ll get a hint of the sound and feeling of Silver Drop.

Live, Gregor performs with a full band, and has played Dark Mofo, Camp Doogs and Boogie Festival.

About this track...

A Song About Holding Hands is the beautiful, gentle first single from debut album Silver Drop.
Gregor says "I sought to express feelings of yearning and intimacy through the simplest, most modest symbol of hand holding, sung from the view of a person who is in conversation with both their own hand and the hand of the one they yearn for."
