The view of 2015 is looking highly promising from where Los Angeles alt-rock quintet Grizfolk is standing, with a successful run of their live-EP release From The Road (Virgin Records) following a high-profile tour with U.K. hitmakers Bastille to round out last year. Looking ahead, the band is eyeing a full-album release while expanding their tour itinerary in the new year.
The band’s driving new single, “Hymnals,” which also appears on their From The Spark EP from early 2014, has received strong praise both in radio and review for its raw vocals with edgy electronic textures and captivating guitar work. If their music sounds familiar, there’s a good chance you’ve heard it on MTV’s “Finding Carter” and “Generation Cryo,” The CW’s “The Originals” and “Hart of Dixie,” as well the end-title sequence song of DreamWorks’ Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
We had the boys into Crave’s office studios late last year to play a couple songs exclusively for CraveOnstage, as well as a sit-down interview exploring the band’s current trajectory. Check out an exclusive acoustic rendition of “Hymnals” by Grizfolk at Crave Studios:
