Australian indie rock band The Griswolds are less than a week away from the release of their debut album and they are in great shoes to leave a permanent mark on the scene. From being featured on Triple J early on, touring with acts such as St Lucia and Django Django along the way, and releasing their Heart of a Lion EP last fall, The Griswolds have carried their past momentum to their forthcoming album Be Impressive, out August 26th via Wind-up Records. With the success of their single "Beware the Dog", they continue their route further into the spotlight with "Live This Nightmare".
With a sultry vibe, "Live This Nightmare" eases through its progression. Beginning with a simplistic synth beat, vocals quickly kick in to add character, building to the songs solid chorus. Throughout the growing soundscape sets the tone, peaking with a hearty guitar instrumental that then fades into a panning groove, built around the vocal-centric structure. As a whole, "Live This Nightmare" is a great showing from The Griswolds peeling back from the energetic, happy-go-lucky sound found in "Beware the Dog".
