Grand National – Drink To Moving On (CD Review)

The mesmeric majesty of Grand National is upon us again with a new single taken from their excellent debut album ‘Kicking The National Habit’. ‘Drink To Moving On’ (Buy it from Amazon) has a laid-back, toe-tapping charm that may not grab your attention from the start but will have you moving in no time. The mixture of the songs being structured like club tunes and rendered in an almost indie style contains elements that are familiar enough to make this easily digested, but full of enough surprises and originality to be uniquely exciting.

This single is backed with the strangely magnificent ‘Strange Magnificent Noise’, a song more relaxed than ‘Drink To Moving On’ but no less hypnotically enjoyable. Also included is the curiously named ’67 Up’ that ups the bass and adds a chiming guitar to create an engaging and otherworldly atmosphere.
