GRIEVING (FFO: Fugazi, Jawbox, At The Drive-In, Les Savy Fav etc.) debut “Little Armoured” on Radio 1 Rock Show

Grieving are a new, unsigned band from Cambridge, playing direct, twisting art-punk. Their first demo was debuted by tastemakers The FADER in March 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.

Their third track, the more direct and anthemic sounds of “My Friend, The Ghost”, debuted with Upset and saw support from Huw Stephens on Radio 1.

This evening the band debuted “Little Armoured”, the title inspired by a book of poetry by Rebecca Perry, a leftfield track, off-kilter and heavy in places and melodic in others. Showing once more a diverse set of influences at work here, and the band’s love for the likes of Dischord and Touch & Go Records.

The band have played their first shows over the last three months, alongside the likes of Tellison, the much buzzed about Muncie Girls and Three Trapped Tigers and have recorded five songs set for release as an EP release, “Demonstrations”, on July 29th.

In debt to the likes of Les Savy Fav, Television, Spy Versus Spy, Bear vs Shark, Dismemberment Plan, Fugazi and elsewhere the lo-fi pop and fully charged punk of Guided By Voices, Pylon, 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, the contemplative melody of “My Friend, The Ghost” HERE and the off-kilter post-hardcore of “Little Armoured” HERE

The band will play the following dates w/

Goldblume, Gutters – The Blue Moon, Cambridge – July 30th
Young Legionnaire, USA Nails – The Lexington, London – August 4th
