MICHAEL A GRAMMAR 

Vitamin Easy is a majestic, triumph of a debut, and we want more." The Line Of Best Fit

"Brooding, krautrock, psych-ish gorgeousness...a slow burning four track EP which hints at limitless potential" Drowned In Sound

"Vocalist Joel Sayers mimics a Bradford Cox style of delivery, creating a fuzzy backdrop to a cacophonous array of glittering guitar sections" DIY Magazine

"Superb Production from Grammar on this slice of shoe-gazery. Heavy, spatial and spititual(zed). DJ Magazine

Michael A Grammar is four young men from Nottingham. The songs on their debut Vitamin Easy EP, were written, recorded and produced over the course of a summer in hometown Brighton by childhood friends Joel Sayers and Frankie Mockett.

"Much of the writing process was about experimenting with different sounds and recording techniques," say the duo. "A lot of the sound is owed to recording in the cold, eerie rooms of a Victorian coach-house, as we wanted to use different spaces to bring an atmospheric sound to the songs."

Their sound is informed by Ultimate Spinach, Stone Roses, Clinic, David Bowie, Roxy Music, Pink Floyd, Pixies and Broadcast (whose song Michael A Grammar gives the band their name). The band's Facebook describes them as "the alien lovechild of too many sunny weekends spent indoors listening to Joy Division and Radiohead". The four tracks here are transcendent, spacious and quietly anthemic – The Beta Band on Ritalin.

The EP name, Vitamin Easy, comes from a song that was lost when a computer crashed. Though it's not on the EP, they found their unique sound – and these other songs – in the pursuit of re-creating it.

Vitamin Easy, released to much acclaim - championed by Mary Ann Hobbs - on 12" vinyl in 2012 marked the first of a series of EPs from the band. The second will follow in early summer 2013.
