The Griswolds returned this year with their explosive sophomore album ‘High Times For Low Lives’. The album presents a sonic evolution for the band, yet is still fuelled with the sun-soaked Griswolds’ shimmer that fans have come to know and love.
The band — singer Chris Whitehall, guitarist/keyboardist Daniel Duque-Perez, bassist Tim John and drummer Lachlan West — teamed up with Grammy Award-winning producer Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Sleigh Bells, fun. and more) at his Los Angeles studio and strikingly evolved their musical personality. Their relentlessly catchy tropical indie-rock is now draped in swathes of funk, RnB, hip-hop and electro, with echoes of Michael Jackson, The Weeknd, Prince, Tame Impala and Kendrick Lamar abounding in its dancefloor-ready pop.
This is all following the band’s 2014 album ‘Be Impressive’ which generated a staggering 30 million streams, debuted #2 on the Billboard New Alternative Charts, #5 on the iTunes Alternative Charts, lead single “Beware the Dog” becoming Rolling Stone Single of the Year 2014
