Gaz Coombes

World’s Strongest Man is the magnificent third solo album by Gaz Coombes. Inspired variously by Grayson Perry’s autobiography “The Descent of Man”, Frank Ocean’sBlonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked masculinity, Neu!, and hip hop (and a whole lot more besides) -- a remarkable collection of eleven deeply personal songs each set to expansive, addictive melodies. From the deep soul purge of the title track to the coruscating Fripp-goes-motorik sprint of “Deep Pockets” via the gorgeous cyclonic ballad “Slow Motion Life” and the raw-as-hell stream of consciousness panic attack of “Vanishing Act”, World’s Strongest Man is a bold, ambitious, free-thinking, future-facing rock‘n’roll record.
