Stream: The Griswolds – Beware The Dog *new indie pop-rock single

May 20th, 2014 by | Alternative/Indie, Pop, Rock |

My favorite up-and-coming Australian band, The Griswolds, released their latest single off their debut album, “Beware The Dog” and it’s so much fun! I love the pop-rock vibe that is just so catchy and sounds a bit tropical, like your dancing on a raft floating down a tropical Amazonian river with exotic animals and tribal people following you along the river dancing and cheering as you are dancing on this raft floating down some exotic river outside your comfort zone.

Stream the new Tony Hoffer (Beck, M83) produced single “Beware The Dog” from The Griswolds below.

I can’t wait for The Griswolds debut album to come out, it’s going to be great!

Video: Chance Waters ft. The Griswolds – Bonnie *indie hip-pop

April 1st, 2014 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video, Pop |

Not sure how to categorize this song but I think it has this hip indie pop-rock feel that is very fun from some awesome Australian musicians in MC Chance Waters and infectious pop-rock band The Griswolds, my favorite emerging pop-rock band in Australia and maybe worldwide!

The video is the perfect companion piece to the multi-talented Chance Waters‘ “Bonnie,” the MC’s collaboration with Sydney indie-poppers The Griswolds. The song blurs lines with pop hooks, harmonies, swathes of live instrumentation and world class production from Adelaide producer One Above (Hilltop Hoods).You can hear elements of Lily Allen crossed with Macklemore, crossed with the jubilation of such modern pop upstarts as Capital Cities.

Watch “Bonnie” below and start singing along to the catchy chorus. Do me a favor and comment below if you know anybody named Bonnie and who is younger than 30 years old. (more…)

Video: The Griswolds – Mississippi (Magic Man Remix)

March 27th, 2014 by | Alternative/Indie, Electropop, Music Video, Remix, synthpop |

I’m a big fan of The Griswolds and their label, Wind-Up Records; also becoming a big fan of Magic Man who are just as talented remixing dope indie songs as they are making original indie electro synth pop jams. Well the two bands came together with Magic Man remixing “Mississippi” from The Griswolds. I still like the original more but this is a laid back remix that will get hipsters to unfold their arms and dance a little bit. Enjoy the video to “Mississippi” (Magic Man Remix) below. (more…)
