Channel D is the work of artist, musician and filmmaker Nick de Grunwald. His new album ‘Unravelling’ was co-produced by Nick with Tim Wills (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Cure) and will be available (physically) July 15th via Straight Lines Are Fine.
Nick explains the infuence behind ‘Unraveling’, “I’d had panic attacks and insomnia on and off since 2001, when my mother died in the same week as 9/11,” Nick admits. “Two years ago, things got considerably worse, which is where these songs germinated. I kind of unravelled. I believe these songs came out of that really bad time. I hope what I experienced will resonate with anyone for whom the night can play tricks with your mind. Or who find terrifying the daily round of suicides, beheadings, bombs and the ravages of war.”
In the meantime get your chops around ‘Ice In The Water’, an emotive ballad that is lead by an infectious chorus.
