From synthpop to trip-hop, from solo work to electro duo to synth-rock band -- and then back to the beginning. Ray Grant's album "Deviations", recorded over the course of past two years, gathers together most of his pop fascinations and in the process sounds both completely Eighties and completely modern, completely cool and completely unfashionable, completely pop and completely complete. The songs tell the stories of smalltown boys, Mylene Farmer admirers, machine-wannabes and mothers that can't stand their sons' eyeliner. With an image largely consisting of clashing tribal tattoos with pink t-shirts, Ray could become the next Mika (if he could be bothered) or the next Younger Younger 28s.
