TUNE The Griswolds - Mississippi
Following the success of their SXSW appearances The Griswolds are ready to present their debut EP, Heart of a Lion to expectant UK audiences on the 2nd of June.
Formed in early 2012, the indie-pop mischief makers have been on a mission to show fans that they are the band capable of producing shimmering indie smashes for 2014. The swirling, swoop of harmony driven anthem Mississippi started the fire across social media and getting out on the road and playing to their new found fans The Griswolds quickly built a strong following across Australia. Airplay on Triple J added fuel to the fire which in turn led to the recording and release of their debut EP Heart of a Lion. Blog love also came from Vice, MTB, Indie Shuffle, Neon Gold and Music Ninja which helped drive The Griswolds to No 5 on the Hype Machine
The Griswolds have been compared to MGMT, Vampire Weekend and Passion Pit but, with their sense of antipodean mischief and unique angular approach to indie-rock, The Griswolds have invited us to a party that is entirely of their own making and the only way to get an invitation is via their music.
