Chorus Grant – “Godplans”
Chorus Grant is Kristian Finne, a Danish multi-instrumentalist who’s also part of a duo called Cancer with When Saints Go Machine singer Nikolaj Vonsild. As Chorus Grant, he kicks out delightful folk-tinged studio-pop that never lets its adventurous sonic palette get in the way of Finne’s whimsically emotive lead vocals. His album Space is already out in Scandinavia, and it’s coming to these shores later this summer. That’s fantastic news because of songs like “Godplans,” which reminds me of a less drowsy Cass McCombs, a less precious Loney Dear, or a far less cloying Ben Folds. It’s an exceptional bit of songcraft that you really ought to hear, so hear it below.
