Griz

Every once in a while it’s our pleasure to funnel some tunes down into your listening canal, and right now is one of those times. Grizfolk  is your next best bet for a 2014 breakout artist. With members from Sweden and America, you’ll be getting, “a blend of the musical sensibilities from both nations, crossing country-tinged fold harmonies with catchy elctro-pop,” according to Consequence of Sound.  “The Struggle” is off their debut EP, From The Spark, and scheduled to be released on February 25th, courtesy of Virgin Records. Currently, it is the only song released on Spotify, so click the “repeat” button and delve into the pop-electronic-rock melting pot. It’ll inspire you to speak your mind and let your challenges help shape who you are. To see (and hear) what I’m talking about, take a look-see at the tour video below.

Consequence of Sound is surely justified in their praise of this band, but more importantly, ANON gives you the thumbs up on these guys. Heed this warning, and put February 25th on your calendar. It’ll be worth the wait. Other dates to add to your calendar are listed below, as they will be in support of ZZ Ward on an upcoming North American tour. You can also catch them at a little festival called South by Southwest. Listen up, people!
