CMJ Band of the Day: Active Child
  • MONDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2011

  • Posted by: Stefanie Wray

Let Active Child massage your mind with chill grooves and celestial vocals on Saturday, October 22 at The Launch Pad, our CMJ Showcase.

Active Child either sounds like an angel floating among storm clouds, or a lovesick alien (your choice). The lush electronic arrangements in Pat Grossi's new album, You Are All I See, would make a great soundtrack for lounging on a rainy day and/or hitting the books in a small coffee shop.

His eclectic sound is both a throwback and a progression, influenced by Radiohead, New Order and James Blake, with straight forward R&B melodies on some songs, and soaring space transmissions on others. Bring a slow dance partner to the show, 'cause Active Child's trickling harps, cool synthesizers, and lyrics like "Wish that I was strong enough/to be yours" will make you want to melt against a warm body.

Check out the music video for "Playing House," off You Are All I See, with guest vocals from How To Dress Well:
