Single Servings: Grand Resort – Night Is Dark

Grand Resort is the project of Dominican Republic-born multi-instrumentalist Andrés Pichardo. Pichardo initially made his way to the States to study at a school in Massachusetts where he recorded the material for his debut album in his bedroom. Subsequently, Pichardo relocated to Brooklyn where he had the tracks mastered by Josh Bonati (The Men, Widowspeak, Zola Jesus). The gauzy, atmospheric and upbeat “Night Is Dark” is the first single from his debut. The tune opens cautiously with ambiant synths and chirping tropical sounding birds before bouncing to life with a shimmering guitar melody and a tight, ebullient rhythm. This is feel good, shoegaze-inspired rock that’ll make you want to get up and on your feet. Give it a listen.
