LISTEN | A Grave With No Name shares new ambient track ‘Wedding Dress’

London-based singer/songwriter Alexander Shields, aka A Grave With No Name, has shared the first single from his new ‘Wooden Mask’, out 12 August.

‘Wedding Dress’ is a Pink Floyd-style brooding track that encapsulates A Grave With No Name’s dark, yet simultaneously delicate sound. With deeply felt, probing lyrics, the first single offers a look at what to expect from the forthcoming record. Speaking about the track, Shields said: “‘Wedding Dress’ is a funereal dance through the barrens of mud and memory”.

Alexander Shields has been recording music under the moniker A Grave With No Name for a number of years now, but never has a collection of his songs more encapsulated the longing, desolate feeling of his namesake. Recorded over a winter at London’s Holy Mountain Studios, ‘Wooden Mask’ finds him opting for a more elemental, skeletal collection of songs than past efforts.

At its core, the album belongs to its name: ‘Wooden Mask’. He describes masks – both those physical and metaphorical – as a way to both disguise and become closer to our transcendental selves.

“Whereas my previous albums have been preoccupied with loss, ‘Wooden Mask’ is a meditation on renewal, using ritual and ceremony as a means to explore this theme.”

‘Wooden Mask’ is set for release August 12 via Forged Artifacts | Catch him live 18 August at Servant Jazz Quarters – London.
