The Grates

Ever wondered what guitar-laden yoga sessions would entail? Complete with a new look and a refined sound, The Grates are back with vengeance. It’s been five years since Patience Hodgson and James Patterson released their debut album, Gravity Won’t Get You High, with several of their first singles, including ‘19 20 20,’ landing in 2006′s Hottest 100. A line-up change has left them as a two piece, but their new sound is anything but diminished. Their latest single ‘Turn Me On,’ has graced radio frequencies across the country since April, with the clip taking them in a rather Karen O-esque direction. Director, Dimitri Basil says the end result could be described as “healthy randomness.” Why not?

Secret Rituals is released June 17th

    Oh she looks lovely in this video clip. Like a young Anna Karina in Alphaville.
