Sydney five-piece The Grand Union recently shared their new single, Darkest Horse. Following up on their debut single, Cathedral of Pain, the release arrives alongside an official visual, directed by Blake Curby.
Produced by Michael Carpenter, the bands second offering offers listeners a further glimpse into their blues infused hard rock sonic exploration, built upon rumbling percussion that builds towards a mesmerising guitar riff. Frontman Jack Hughes offers a strong vocal performance, with catchy lyricism exploring the juxtaposition between good and evil.
Speaking of the track, the band share in a press release: "...the song contains relatable everyday themes such as the juxtaposition between good vs evil, one’s success vs their failures and heroes and villains. Musically, the song takes listeners on a journey that matches the lyrical content. The song starts with a melodic atmospheric intro before building through a hooky pre-chorus and crashing into a searing “did you say rock” chorus."
Hailing from all corners of the globe, The Grand Union united musicians from Australia, England and New Zealand, bringing together their multitude of influences to their own musical project. The five-piece call the stage their home, bringing their experience to their energetic performances.
