Close your eyes and you could almost imagine the slick, ice cold movie this might score. – Stephen Mayne, Under The Radar
The latest review of SHANGHAI, College’s new album is now up at Under The Radar — read it here. If you haven’t had a chance to hear the rich, synth-based album, it’s available now on all digital providers and coming soon to CD via Lakeshore/Invada Records.
Grellier also borrows from film composers including Angelo Badalamenti, whose influence is apparent on “Elizabeth Monterey”‘s breezy synth washes and “Mister Fang”‘s ominous textures. – Heather Phares, AllMusic
David Grellier, aka College, released his new full-length album, SHANGHAI, digitally through Lakeshore / Invada Records, with the CD and vinyl coming soon. In anticipation of getting your hands on the CD, AllMusic conducts a thorough review of this highly-anticipated release, and you can read the full review here. The album’s music being compared to iconic composer Angelo Badalamenti and music which could be placed in the next Nicolas Winding Refn neo-noir film are just a couple of the highlights!
My top cuts from this album are “Bloody Palms,” “Lipstick,” “Is It Time” and “TyphoonAlert.” The single, “Love Peas,” is less ambient and differs greatly from the other tracks on this album. It’s luscious and lachrymose, truly beautiful in it’s own right. – Andrew Zistler, NewRetroWave
