Great Band Alert: Grieving
Cambridge, England's Grieving is a powerhouse of a new band. Mixing elements of post hardcore, melodic punk anthems, indie rock, with great pop sensibilities, Grieving have created a sound that is distinct, powerful, poignant, catchy, and familiar. To date the band has released three songs: the stupidly catchy anthem "No Sleep," the slightly angular "Owning," and the broodily subdued "My Friend, The Ghost." All three songs are distinct and pull from varying influences but all three are obviously Grieving. This band has perfectly mixed influences as disparate as Jawbreaker, Fugazi, Guided By Voices, and "Don't Change" era INXS into a sound that is something to behold. These guys obviously have incredible taste in music because it shines through in these songs. This is a band to watch and I for one can't wait to see what they do next!
