The Grave Architects

London, UK
Artist / Band / Musician
Hello there

Well friends, 2010 is nearly over. At the end of 2010 – the film –
cosmic monoliths engulf Jupiter and increase its density to the point
that nuclear fusion occurs, transforming the planet into a small star
– a new sun - whose miraculous appearance inspires the leaders of
America and Soviet Union to seek peace and put an end to (the cold)
war. Fast forward 16 years and at the end of 2010 – the year -
something equally miraculous happening….

On the 13th December 2010 The Grave Architects finally release their
years-in-the-making debut album spectacular “Love Reaction” on Records
Records Records records! It is perhaps a little early to speculate on
the long-term effect of the LP on the middle east peace process but it
is never to early to start celebrating. And so The Grave Architects
have lined up 2 gigs –

Wednesday 17th November @ Cargo, London with Allo Darlin’

***Album Launch Party ***
Saturday 11th December @ The Others, Stoke Newington with GiT and
Yngve and the Innocent

“Love Reaction”, effectively a concept album about Love in all its
many incarnations, will be available on CD and MP3 download (more
details to follow shortly) - . And for all those
who bought The Bike Song during our Storm the Charts campaign we have
not forgotten about you - your free album download email will be with
you, like, well soon.

Talking of which did we mention that “The Bike Song” video has had
over 150,000 YouTube views? We did? Do you mind if we say it again?

That will most certainly do for now and finally, after the 13th
December, 2010 will be remembered for more than a woman putting a cat
in a wheelie bin.

See you soon!

Check this out from the nice people at Bugbear:

THE GRAVE ARCHITECTS- We all fell over in amazement on first hearing this incredible new act- and I was actually already reclined so dunno how that occurred. I think I actually stood up in a falling down way. Any rate , the offbeat humour of a Jonathon Richman, the kookiness of early Pavement, the tunefulness of Loaded era Velvets , yet very English and eccentric ….The ghost of Syd Barret’s also in the house, there's psychedelic passages with kind of posh rapping over the top. Which bizarrely sounds a bit like Caravan in places! So this is really quite interesting, but more importantly great fun! Their opus about bikes [er, 'Bike'] is kind of Queen by The Monks via De La Soul. A single out on Fortuna Pop. Buy/steal/blag- but see them play now!

Some nice things people have said about the band:

“Meet the Coen Brothers of rock – off the wall, touching and very, very funny”

"Eccentric folk-hop, like Eels doing Morrissey doing 'Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus” - NME

“something special’s going on - a distillation of Rivers Cuomo’s geekish charm, cut with a thorough British edge” –

“The Grave Architects have the same sense of quirkiness as Jarvis Cocker and Stephen Malkmus” FUNFUNFUN Webzine

"From Johnny Cash-esque country jangles to strangely credible old-school raps, whatever genre the Architects dabble in, entertainment remains the blueprint." – New

"A collective audience jaw drop later and their thirty minutes are up but the applause speaks volumes." -

“if you know what you're doing, you'll book 'em” Dean Jackson, Presenter of “The Beat” on BBC Radio Nottingham and Mercury Music Prize Judge.
