Cumbria, UK-based singer/songwriter Arran George has shared his new lead single, "How High Does the English Grass Grow," from his debut album, What I See On Daytime TV, and we are pleased to premiere it. The video features George lounging in his apartment as objects morph and melt as the time passes. The sense of claustrophobia and immanent beauty play off one another in the track as his curiousity and wonder act as bulwarks against the oppressive nature of routine and aimlessness. George's track is mostly fingerpicked guitars and gently layered vocal harmonies, but in his hands this formula produces a novel sounding blend of psych-folk and soul. Check out the video below.

George had this to say about the track in a statement to Under the Radar: "I always thought of it as like a fever dream. So I thought the video should be the same. Also, I like how ugly I look in it. The face melts and everything, it needed to be that. It needed to be claustrophobic and weird because that's where it came from. I wrote it so I didn't just stick my head on an escalator and wait for it to rip my face off."
