I thought, in the beginning, that he was something of a ghost.
We used to find traces, wonderful elements of his music scattered in places, dissolving in long distances and coming back.
Then, I said to myself that maybe Grim Anise did not exist _ though such amazing sounds were too good for someone that simply did not exist_ maybe he was publicity shy, wanting to communicate only through his music, until the universe, secret laws of coincidence or something else which is simple and real and not metaphysical nonsense –an email?– revealed the man behind the music, the music itself and now, my friends, the excellent new album of Grim Anise, Rain City.
With his concrete and absolute sense of melody he creates his musical narrative, plotting his stories in cinematic landscapes. Gloomy electronic beats, liquid sounds haunting vocals make RAIN CITY a place that you feel attracted to visit, prepared for the unexpected.
Grim Anise (Dimitris Grimanis) is from Athens and lives in a “place” where Massive Attack spent time, Portishead come and go, Ben Watt digs, James Blake hangs out. Υou would definitely love to visit this Rain City. No umbrella required.
