Grove has shared details of their forthcoming EP, ‘P*W*R’, alongside the release of new single ‘STINKIN RICH FAMILIES’. Listen below.
The Bristol-based artist's follow-up to 2021's ‘SPICE’ EP arrives on 19th July and has already been previewed through anti-monarchy single ‘BIG BOOTS’ (ft. EJ:AKIN).
Speaking about the EP, Grove said: “‘P*W*R’ is the first half of a double EP that explores power in all its forms. The first half explores the murkier end of power; the power that people believe to only be achievable through exploitation and immorality – seeking to remind people that the truest and most potent form of power lies within the us all and is activated through community and organisation.
“The second half will explore a much more playful side of power dynamics, cheekiness and exploration.”
Addressing the political content of ‘STINKIN RICH FAMILIES’, Grove said: “The ‘cost of living crisis’ is a phrase of pure propaganda. Repeated to us to take away blame from the greedy families who've syphoned off hundreds of millions of pounds of public money for themselves and their friends.
“Lyrical titan Bobby Vylan and I explore the real world effects of this greed, and channel it in the only way we know how to – loud & directly. We met when I supported Bob Vylan on their headline tour last year, and to have this track come from that experience feels significant.”
Grove is scheduled for several festivals this summer including Sonar on 15th June, Glastonbury on 23rd June and Shambala on 25th August. See the full list of dates here.
