Description

Seamlessly transcending any notions of the ‘second album syndrome,’ “Girl And Robot With Flowers” emerges as a sonic masterpiece that eclipses its predecessor, propelling listeners into realms of boundless imagination. Drawing inspiration from sci-fi luminary Brian Aldiss, the album embarks on a thematic voyage through cinematic jazz, seductive ambience, and exhilarating drama, offering an unpredictable and enthralling auditory experience. British pianist, composer, and arranger Greg Foat orchestrates this sonic journey with finesse, employing an eclectic array of instruments—from brass bands to Moog synthesizers—to elevate the listener beyond the confines of earthly senses.

Recorded in an exclusive, pure analogue studio in Sweden, akin to its predecessor, “Girl And Robot With Flowers” captures its diverse instrumentation’s full warmth and depth. The impeccable quality of the recording, achieved through vintage equipment and direct-to-tape techniques, unveils a magical atmosphere rarely encountered in today’s digital era dominated by MP3s. Throughout the years, Greg Foat has collaborated with an array of esteemed musicians and artists, and with tours across Europe and the UK, their music has enchanted audiences far and wide, including notable figures like Jamie Cullum, Chris Evans, and Jude Law, among others.
