Wine Lips

Matthew Grouse

A good deal of my recent music has been imbued with a relatively sombre or dense atmosphere, reflecting the difficult circumstances that society faces during this ongoing turbulence and unpredictability.

The character of this work attempts to escape this and look at ideas of hope, naivety and vulnerability, consciously in opposition to the global circumstances in which it is written. I have also been increasingly interested in more unconventional ways of structuring my music. In Wine Lips, I engage with the idea of moments appearing and passing with little development, which aligns with my interest in seeking out the remarkable in the seemingly ordinary and mundane aspects of everyday life.
