Paste Magazine's 25 Georgia Bands You Should Listen To Now

Added on by Austin Harris.

Big thanks to Paste Magazine for including on this list of so many new great Georgia bands!

Listening to Grand Vapids’ brand new debut album is like a crash course in indie-guitar-rock school. Fuzzy, droning guitar recalls everything from Pixies and Built to Spill to Beach House and Wavves with the mellow vocals of McKendrick Bearden and Austin Harris—filtered through an echo chamber of effects—giving everything a lush, layered vibe. It’s the distillation of three decades of college rock radio, appropriately coming out of a town like Athens

Screen Point Blank Album Review

Added on by Austin Harris.

Screen Point Blank has written an excellent review of Guarantees.

Overall, the auspicious Guarantees is a confident release that acutely demonstrates the songwriting and technical ability of the persons involved in its creation – it’s really the craftsmanship on display here that sets this album apart... they let their songs speak for themselves while leading the listener into a syrupy dream in which the cares of the world slowly fade away.

Full Album Stream on PopMatters

Added on by Austin Harris.

PopMatters has premiered our debut album Guarantees.

With equal parts driving guitar riffs and catchy hooks, Guarantees is an under-the-radar indie rock LP that, well, should be on everyone’s radar. This is approachable yet somewhat distant rock that draws you in with its melancholy brood—a perfect aural companion to have when the winter skies are still grey.

Listen to the album here!

Flood Magazine Premieres "No Memory"

Added on by Austin Harris.

Flood Magazine premieres "No Memory"

In the vein of Real Estate—whose own debut five years ago made some very significant (and very relaxed) waves in the indie music world—the Atlanta band continue the thread of twenty-first-century, reinvigorated guitar-driven music...
