Watch: the GOLDEN DREGS – Before We Fell From Grace

the GOLDEN DREGS (real name Benjamin Woods) shares a new offering from his forthcoming record, On Grace & Dignity, out February 10th. Like its predecessors ‘American Airlines’ and ‘Sundown Lake,’ ‘Before We Fell From Grace’ is deeply rooted in Woods’ rich baritone, his voice beautifully laying the foundation for the song to crescendo into a joyous chamber-pop anthem. The video is equally as striking, Joe Wheatley creating a richly moving black-and-white narrative on the fragility of death.

Releasing on 10th February, Woods’ third album, On Grace & Dignity, considers his home and what it means to be shaped by a place – in this instance, Truro, Cornwall’s capital, home to a rare three-spired cathedral, a peaceful river and a lot of empty shops and flimsy out-of-town housing estates. In among the personal reflections on loss of innocence and inferiority, Woods spins subtly interweaving narratives about survival, desperate acts of violence, loss and the limitations of community in the face of rapacious gentrification. On Grace & Dignity unfolds at a graceful pace and is grounded by Woods’s deep voice, which seems to resonate from his feet.
