GNAC / AFTERNOON FROST

The new 10-track album

** NB: the WAVs for the digital download were uploaded at 24 bit / 48 kHz

Album Press Release.

Whether accompanying TV programmes on John Le Carré or experienced live beneath stars, nightjars and bats by the Guadalquivir in Seville, GNACʼs intriguing music has always had the power to transport the listener to another time and place. Now, after an eleven-year absence, GNAC are back.

Afternoon Frost is the sixth full-length from composer Mark Tranmerʼs instrumental GNAC project. Inspired to relaunch GNAC after the inclusion of early single “The Broken Fall” on Tim Burgess and Bob Stanleyʼs 2019 “Tim Peaks” compilation, Tranmer wrote, performed and recorded the album from his home studio in Stirling, Scotland, during 2020ʼs enforced solitude. As with all Tranmerʼs oeuvre, Afternoon Frost is cinematic in scope, spanning piano-led miniatures (”Gathering Shadow”) to layer upon layer of lush instrumentation (”Winter Moon”, “Cinematagrafica”). Prior to dusting off the GNAC moniker, Tranmer co-wrote and recorded an album with Italian pianist Alessandra Celletti in Rome. He was also one-half of the Montgolfier Brothers, alongside sorely missed songwriter, lyricist and vocalist Roger Quigley; the band released two albums on Alan McGeeʼs Poptones label.

Mastered in Glasgow by Samuel J. Smith, Afternoon Frost is at once a welcome addition to the GNAC discography and an exciting evolution of the themes and motifs that the project is so well known for. I

“Tranmer's music has been one of the soundtracks to my life for many years now, not least during the writing of my new novel.
I love the way his supple, original music can either soothe you
in the background or absorb you in the foreground.“
—Jonathan Coe, author of The Rottersʼ Club and Middle England

“This is inescapably music. Chamber music, possibly...with enough post-rock plinks, plonks and percussion to reassure you itʼs not 1602.” —Kitty Empire, pop music critic, The Observer

“Beautiful...” —Alan McGee

“Ethereal...” —Tim Burgess
