Today’s song is “High Times for Low Lives” by The Griswolds.
The Australian group is comprised of Chris Whitehall [vocals/guitar], Dan Duque-Perez [guitar/synth], Tim John [bass], and Lachlan West [drums].
This is the title track off their upcoming sophomore release which is due out November 11th on Wind-up Records. It is the follow up to the band’s 2014 debut album, Be Impressive which hit #2 on the Billboard Alternative Chart, garnered a staggering 30 million album streams, and saw the band notch a #1 position on Hype Machine and tour extensively, playing massive festivals around the globe. The album was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Sleigh Bells, fun.),
The song was recently featured on Entertainment Weekly and chronicles the ups and downs of the band’s real-life journey as they follow their dreams and experience love and heartbreak – and the sacrifices, bad behavior and lessons that come in the aftermath.
This group has an instant likability with their harmonious vocals and piano melodies. They are one part Fall Out Boy, one part Imagine Dragons and completely captivating. Their intriguing music will get your attention and the emotive lyrics will keep you listening.
