Swallow Your Doubt is the second EP from Irish pop act, PureGrand - which consists of 22 year old Dublin born, art graduate, Luke Faulkner.
Using strong melodies and 1980s pop production styles, the EP deconstructs the idea of queer masculinity as well as a frank exploration of the complexities of dating and sex for gay men.
Inspired by bedroom pop, PureGrand is entirely homemade, everything from the vocals to the artwork is created by Faulkner in his bedroom.
The EP was written on and off over the past year, while he learned to improve his production and songwriting abilities after he released his first EP - Synthetic Roots at the end of 2016. In this time there were two single releases, New Stroke and most recently Fallout.
Luke hopes to spend the next year developing a performance art inspired live act while continuing to work on new material.
