GRICE returns with ‘Saviour’ the lead single from his 5th solo album POLARCHORAL where he presents his unique brand of sonic alchemy through a powerful, intricate and emotionally challenging single.

Powerful and defiant, ’Saviour’ is a sonic satellite launched into the darkness - a beacon of hope - a search for unity and healing in a fractured and polarised world.
