Album Review: Ghostpoet – I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep

Posted on 13 May 2020 at 10:08am

You don’t have to be from a foreign country to be a refugee: Obaro Ejimiwe, the man who’s worn the Ghostpoet name for almost a decade, moved from London a couple of years ago to rustic Margate on the coast. Wanting more space and time to draw a moat around both his performing and real lives, he set up a multi-purpose shop, café and radio station, part of an arts renaissance which the seaside town has either enjoyed or suffered recently, dependent on your outlook.

Since coming to prominence in 2011 with the Mercury-nominated Peanut Butter Blues And Melancholy Jam, Ejimiwe has spent more time than is reasonable grappling with constant references to his production envelope as trip hop (incorrect) and/or being a bit gloomy (the cap fits better here). The debut was a largely electronic take on glitchy, post-club comedowns, but by his last release, Dark Days & Canapés, the instrumentation was real, even if the angst remained.
