At the previous Grauzone edition we invited Jehnny Beth, vocalist of Savages. This time we present Savages guitarist Gemma Thompson, one of the most talented and inventive guitarists of her generation. Bashan is her experimental solo project. Formed over several years whilst recording and touring extensively with her band Savages across the globe, she performs as a soloist constructing sound fields of shimmering layers and deep resonance. Bashan's first release 'EP1' was written and recorded over the summer and released in October 2017. The EP projects and intricate collage of works inspired by the imagery of American painter Morris Graves - using guitars, field recordings, voice and joined by musician Sam Sherry on percussion and harmonium to find a way to trace the trajectory of each sound, to follow it's path unquestioning.
