UK Artist of the Week: Architects of Grace

It’s been five years since we’ve seen Architects of Grace, aka Duncan Robert. In 2011, he released the album Moments In Time, a dark take on indie rock, and with the release of the “Outsiders” EP imminent, it feels like this is Architects of Grace’s rebirth.

In terms of sound, there’s a more refined feel to the textures Robert created on the debut album. Elements of ’80s indie are present and the edges feel somewhat sharper than before. The black and white visuals of the video “Stay To Say” have the same gothic feel as before, but there’s an added avant-garde shade to proceedings and a maturity to the music.

In five years the scene has seen the resurgence of vivid ’90s pop, shoegaze, and elements of grunge, but as the tide ebbs and flows, it may be just the right time for Architects of Grace to step out from the shadows.
