7digital What we said: Boasting a deadly combination of soaring melodies and astonishingly candid lyrics, John Grant’s debut was pretty hard to fault. In fact, it was so damn good that we feared he’d set himself an insurmountable task topping it. We needn’t have worried. Not content to retread old ground, Grant decamped to Reykjavik to record Pale Green Ghosts with Biggi “Gusgus” Veira and, together they’ve swapped the 70s-sensibility of Queen Of Denmark for more synthetic sounds, influenced by contemporary electronica and New Wave/New Romantic pop. Lyrically, Grant’s as bewitching as ever, sifting through the debris of dysfunctional relationships with a variety of toe-curling and touching lines, and bravely tackling his recent diagnosis with HIV, on the superb, sax-flecked shimmer of ‘Ernest Borgnine’.
