Gretta Gunn was born from a dis-ease with the folk/indie scene, having herself spent a long time in the bands of others, always keen to break free and bring her own unique sound to the table. She produces, writes and records everything you hear today. She is very proud of the array of synthesizers she has accumulated over the years; the Little Phatty Moog, prophet 8, Nord Lead and Virus are among her beloved family, and it’s safe to say she’s a lover of the analogue sound.
Gretta has a dear love of the Ballad side of the eighties, an era when melody mattered, and the movie soundtracks that made us all feel invincible. Hook after Hook is what made those songs exist. She describes her music as a soundtrack from the eighties movies rather than the classic eighties sound. She mixes this sound with elements of breakdance and even metal at times.
The need to be in the country is an essential ingredient to making her music the-se days. Gretta chooses a more solitary life to assure the focus of the sounds she fell in love with as a child, having created a small magical studio for herself in her little country cottage in Ireland. When she does venture out to perform, she brings a feisty attitude, appearance and songs to match. Gretta is helped out live by her co-pilot Paul Hammock (aka Cignol) who plays a big role in the sound quality overall and triggering drums live, leaving Miss Gunn free to enjoy the per-formance.
The Target is part 2 of a 4 part album by Miss Gunn. Which should be described as another Snarling musical Cerberus. Three more tunes to add to the building army, all presented once again in 10-inch form with quality, glamour and style. This time around we see a release from Norway’s Dødpop label. Gretta Gunn meets skweee with some promising remixes to come. 6 months of hunting out her audience she now has her eyes firmly set on the Target. Gretta Gunn brings a fresh twist to an old sound with feisty lyrics to match.
