Flavorwire Premieres "Losing"

Added on by Austin Harris.

Flavorwire premieres "Losing" from our debut album Guarantees.

Athens, Georgia’s Grand Vapids are a throwback to indie rock’s not-so-distant past. I hear multiple musical scenes in the corners of their songs, from mid-career Wilco to Elephant 6 band Beulah to Built to Spill to Kurt Vile. If you’ve kept up with guitar music over the last decade or two, you’ll likely find something to enjoy within Grand Vapids’ music.

Stereogum Shares "Aubade"

Added on by Austin Harris.

Stereogum shares "Aubade" from our forthcoming debut album Guarantees which will be released January 20th.

...it’s instrumentally lush, understated indie rock reminiscent of a more celestial take on Deerhunter’s “Desire Lines.”

Consequence of Sound Premieres "Aubade"

Consequence of Sound premieres "Aubade" from our upcoming debut album!

The record’s latest single, “Aubade”, sounds like the whimsical result of a young band experimenting in the studio setting. The pulsing drums and echoing vocal effects create a sense of constant movement in the track; nothing is ever hurried, and each moving part feels defined and purposeful.

Guarantees will be released on January 20th.

Stereogum Premieres "Kiln"

Added on by Austin Harris.

Stereogum premieres "Kiln" from our upcoming debut.

Grand Vapids hail from Athens, where they’ve honed a droning take on indie rock in the lineage of Galaxie 500, Low, and fellow Georgians Deerhunter. “Kiln,” from the band’s Drew Vandenberg-produced debut album Guarantees, is a fine demonstration of that style, all somnambulant beauty and shimmering, scraping white noise. The song seems to spend its entire run time either waking up to a new day or slowly moving toward that light you supposedly see when you’re dying.

Song Premiere and Interview at IMPOSE Magazine

Listen to the song premiere of "Adequate" at Impose!

Sometimes there is that song that just strikes you in your most vulnerable spot, where the invested contributions to composites of the ego are brought down by roaring boulders of misapplied attention. Such is the grandeur, the sledgehammer to the gut hit of the dissected and deconstructed self-agonizing anguish that is “Adequate”, the big new premiere from Grand Vapids...

Song Premiere: Listen to "Tuned" on CMJ

Listen to the song premiere of "Tuned" over at CMJ!

Athens, GA’s Grand Vapids have only been together since the start of this year, but their music sounds like the output of a band with way more than exactly zero albums under its belt. Guarantees will be Grand Vapids’ debut LP, set to arrive at the start of 2015. Until then, we’ve got the premiere of the album track Tuned, which struts around with a lazing Beck monotone and a wobbly Pixies buzz....

Song Premiere: Hear 'Worth Fearing' on AltCitizen

Added on by Austin Harris.

Check out the song premiere and track review of 'Worth Fearing' on AltCitizen!

Despite the track’s ominous advisory in its title, Georgia’s own Grand Vapids’ “Worth Fearing,” the first single off of their upcoming debut album Guarantees, is nothing that’ll put you on edge. Quite the opposite, actually. The vocals feel like whiskey and a fireplace on a winter night — sort of similar to Father John Misty’s more tender side — and the lush layers of guitar provide a swirling, ambient undercurrent to get lost in...
