Lo Five is multi-instrumentalist Neil Grant, born in Liverpool and now living in the wilds of coastal Hoylake on the Wirral Peninsula. He regularly performs live and each month curates his event ‘Emotion Wave’, a platform for performing electronic artists.
"…memoradelic flashbacks…glinting chord-chimes and gauzy keyboards teleport me to the middle 80s. Another fine addition to the Patterned Air discography, and an unusual listen."
Simon Reynolds, The WIRE
"Like an old classic you’ve never heard, or a fuzzy memory of something beautiful and enigmatic that you vaguely remember dreaming about, this striking debut will catch you in an enveloping moment you’ll never want to leave.
"Lo Five, aka multi-instrumentalist Merseysider Neil Grant, conjures simultaneously familiar and unique sonic visions right the way through this striking long-form debut. It’s a kind of rave-reverie made real; the cumulative sum of past experiences, both physical and audiological, condensed into an opaque, hauntingly meditative trip down an imagined lane where the second summer of love’s golden vibes reside, aged but untarnished."
"Vintage synths and drum machines and a recurring meditation bell summon early Orbital. Remarkable."
Carl Griffin, Electronic Sound Mag
