‘Soft Return’ is an audio movie where the surface sheen hides a bruised heart, like Francis Ford Coppola’s film ‘One From The Heart’, Grovesnor’s songs are full of soft focus imagery and fine performances.
Grovesnor is Rob Smoughton, multi instrumentalist, member of Hot Chip and founder of Black Peaches, a student of the old school who loves a good tune and a crisp rhythm. “I always try to write songs with strong melody and harmony, and with an underlying narrative, but I also own a pair of dancing shoes and love to boogie. ”
