Kicking off their 2015 tour this week, Los Angeles alt-rock quintet Grizfolk are eager to embark on a successful run after their live-EP release From The Road (Virgin Records) led to 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. First debuting with an exclusive acoustic rendition of “Hymnals,” the band delivers its second performance – a stripped down version of “Waiting For You” – at Crave Studios.
