London artist Alexander Shields aka A Grave With No Name have announced the release of his sixth album Passover. Landing January 19th on Forged Artifacts, the new record finds Shields incorporating field recordings amidst indie, art-rock and country sound structures. Inspired by the revisiting of his family after the passing of his grandmother, each song is written like an individual short story, yet ultimately fitting together to form one big puzzle.
Shields has also shared his new single ‘Wreath’ which is featured on the upcoming LP. Exploring the theme of man’s interaction or lack of with nature, you can listen to ‘Wreath’ below.
Touching on the new single, A Grave With No Name stated:
“Wreath’ is exploration of the relationship between humanity and the land which we inhabit. Whereas nature once provided mankind with a source of spirituality, education and sustenance, it has now been tamed, despoiled and commodified, and is used to justify the waging of wars, prejudice, and greed. The song asks for a moral awakening, and a return to a simpler, more considered way of living.”
