Choir-boy turned indie-dreampop mastermind Pat Grossi has an ethereal brand of electronic soundscapes that conjures imagery of the grandiose and the graceful.
Monday Music’s the one weekly post wherein Some Of It Was True! drops its London-only rule. The sun's out, England are getting tonked in the cricket and ice-cream vans are tinkling somewhere nearby. It feels like the summers of my childhood... DIIV - How Long Have You Known? Oh god, turn it up louder, louder, LOUDER. Signed to Captured Tracks , DIIV is the new act of Z. Cole Smith, he of Beach Fossils . [...]
Active Child - Johnny Belinda
In this video for Active Child 's "Johnny Belinda", Pat Grossi takes a nice humble stroll around nature to get someone off his mind. "Humble", being that he's in perhaps the most crazy beautiful place on this planet, and whoever is on his mind, considering his current whereabouts, probably shouldn't be on it! This is set on massive cinematographic scale by director Dylan Wiehahn . With thunder clouds sweeping over head, greenery drinking you in, and plains doing those overwhelming plain-like things they always do, you really feel the need to go outside and get lost. Or you [...]
No início de 2010 falámos aqui de Pat Grossi , numa altura que dava os primeiros passos mas já tinha atenção de muitos ouvidos. Neste momento, em tempo de repouso, de uma longa digressão de divulgação do seu álbum de estreia "You Are All I See", com algumas datas a abrir para os M83, e de grande aclmação crítica, é nos oferecido um novo vídeo para um dos temas do álbum, "Johnny Belinda", com a realização de Dylan Wiehahn olhando os céus australianos e não os de L.A., onde Pat vive.
"You Are All I See," the debut album from Active Child was a BBLA favorite and a success for L.A.'s Pat Grossi. Now that his national tour in support of the record has wrapped up, Grossi's next step takes him back in to the studio for a follow-up. The sophomore effort is slated for a release sometime next year, but before disappearing into the abyss of songwriting, we get another gorgeous music video from the falsetto-singing, electro-inclined harp player. Dylan Wiehahn's direction for "Johnny Belinda" transforms clouds and scenery from the aast coast of Australia into [...]

Active Child - "Johnny Belinda" (Official Music Video) from Active Child on Vimeo . 'You Are All I See" was one of my favorite albums last year, here is the latest video to "Johnny Belinda". Active Child should be on everyones radar at this point. Beauty comes in so many forms and the combination of strings and Pat Grossi's voice are ones that are tough to beat.
A Quick Word from the Author: If you're from the United States, then I hope your 4th was as splendid as the 30 second burst of fireworks in San Diego. It's a glorious day to eat a whole lot of unhealthy food, drink a lot of booze and blow shit up. It's how we do here. We're 'MERICA, and we have very few fucks to give. There's really not much else to say, I just wanted to wish you all a fantastic Independence Day. Moving on... [...]

Active Child had seemingly dropped off the radar after 2011's excellent debut record You Are All I See . But now he's back, with a beautiful new video for a track from that album, 'Johnny Belinda'. Has anyone noticed yet how much Active Child - aka Pat Grossi - looks like Homeland's Damian Lewis, or is it just me? If we pretend he actually is Sargent Brody for a minute, then this whole Game of Thrones-esque countryside he resides in in this video makes a whole lot of sense for this beautifully [...]
