Thea Grant

Sat 17 Feb, Quarterhouse, Folkestone
Hot Salvation 10th Anniversary Programme
Doors Open 16:00

Grant's breathy and gentle vocal delivery sets a tone of intimacy, drawing listeners into a world where sound becomes an ethereal companion. The richness of her composition lies in its multifaceted layers: warm sub-bass swells form a sturdy foundation, enveloping you in a cocoon of deep, resonating tones. These are further complemented by reverberated layers that stretch across the sonic spectrum, creating a vast and immersive soundscape.

Thea’s sense of contrast stands proud. While the foundation is built on intimacy and warmth, there's a playful yet artful incorporation of heavy distortion and vocal pitch shifting. These elements add vibrant crunch to the otherwise dreamy, distant feel, creating an intriguing tension within the music. The juxtaposition of these elements injects a dynamic quality.

Thea Grant has previously released albums and EP's with the experimental pop and rock bands Caramel 11, j00 and JUNO as well as touring extensively in Norway and Scandinavia. She has also produced soundtracks and performed with the contemporary dance companies Arch 8 and Panta Rei in New York, England and Norway.

Thea Grant's single "A Night of a Dream" is a musical odyssey that skilfully weaves together ethereal vocals, intricate soundscapes, and emotive textures, conjuring an entrancing sonic landscape.

Grant's ability to craft such a hypnotic and longing atmosphere speaks volumes about her artistry, which will be revealed further in 2024. Her Oslo-based roots seem to echo within the music, as if the landscapes of the city have lent their essence to the soundscape she has meticulously crafted. "A Night of a Dream" stands as a testament to her talent, inviting audiences to immerse themselves fully in its enchanting allure.
