Enter Deep State, the hypnotic new artist album from Scotland’s Graeme Shepherd, a.k.a. GRUM. Pulling you down the rabbit hole, Deep State draws influences from 90’s rave culture, trance and techno for a bruising and brooding take on not only the contemporary dance scene, but life around it.
An anthem for collectivism over collusion, ‘Never Have To Be Alone’s’ spirit echoes that of the Anjuna family; a positive reflection of music bringing us together. Providing a suitably exultant moment on the dance floor, it’s a reminder of Graeme’s ability to write pop-edged riffs as well as dark hearted records.
‘Never Have To Be Alone’ is taken from GRUM’s second studio LP Deep State, coming to Anjunabeats this Autumn. ‘Deep State’ is available to pre-order now via Anjunabeats, digitally, on CD and on 2×12″ vinyl.
GRUM’s Deep State album tour is on sale now, including multiple dates across North America and Europe. Tickets are available for the tour now here.
