GRDNS Release Psych-Tinged New Single ‘Juniper’ via Dance to the Radio
Psych-rockers GRDNS share latest effort Juniper, the second cut from their upcoming EP out later this year via Dance To The Radio.
Emerging from the largely forgotten and multi-cultural northern city of Bradford, the indie quartet burst onto the scene in February with woozy, off-kilter rock number Night Dance before heading out on the road with Husky Loops and whenyoung, drawing widespread acclaim in the process.
Discussing the release, frontman Jacob Lyons stated: “Juniper takes influence from both the modern and vintage surf sounds with a prog/alt section at the end but doesn’t particularly sound like either. It was the first song we got together as a full band and the lyrics frequently reference the colour blue and a few of its colour palette relatives. The meaning of the song is open to interpretation, like all the rest will be”.
GRDNS’ own blend of psychedelia, heavily influenced by Tame Impala and Humbug-era Arctic Monkeys, has already landed them support slots with acts including Stereo Honey, Sea Girls and The Pale White and they’ll be playing their debut London show in May before an appearance at Live At Leeds.
Produced by James Kenosha (Pulled Apart By Horses, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Rhodes)GRDNS’ Juniper is out now (20th March) and is available on all platforms.
02 May – Sebright Arms, London
