[MP3] The Griswolds – “Heart of a Lion” & “Mississippi”
i won’t fall in love with you this time, i refuse to give it up to you this time
- Who: 5 Aussies.
- What: Off kilter rock jams, like Generationals, Hooded Fang, Regurgitator
- Where: Sydney, Australia + Facebook
- When: Debut EP due in August.
- Why: The video for “Heart of A Lion” involves lots of color, dancing, and handclaps. I’d say that’s spot on for The Griswolds, the band currently forcing my limbs to move even as I struggle to whack this text out on my keyboard. These guys are fun in a bottle. Big “ooh, oohs”, a relentless rhythm section, and then that little tender part at 1:45 where you recompose yourself before building up to the rock-outro (new word!).
And then there is “Mississippi” which turns up the grooves and harmonies for maximum summer playlist compatibility. More songs please!
