Grieving are a new, unsigned band from Cambridge, playing direct, twisting art-punk. Their first demo was debuted by tastemakers The FADER last month and their second track – the raw, dual vocalled post-hardcore / 90’s indie-rock of “Ownership” – saw them pick up their first Radio 1 play from Dan P Carter.
Today they release another track in quick succession, premiering with Upset, the melodic, hooky “My Friend, The Ghost” that like previous material takes a sharp turn in the final third.
The band have played their first shows over the last couple of months, alongside the likes of Tellison, the much buzzed about Muncie Girls and Three Trapped Tigers and have recorded six songs set for release as an EP release, “Demonstrations”, in July.
In debt to the likes of Les Savy Fav, Television, Bear vs Shark, Dismemberment Plan, Fugazi and elsewhere the lo-fi pop and fully charged punk of Guided By Voices, Samiam, The Lemonheads, Bob Mould etc. you can hear the anxious, anthemic indie-punk of “No Sleep” HERE, the more angular crunch of “Ownership” HERE and the contemplative melody of “My Friend, The Ghost” HERE
The band will play the following dates w/
Post War Glamour Girls at The Corner House, Cambridge on 27th May
F A L L S and Noyo Mathis at The Old Blue Last, London on May 30th
