New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth the exclusive premiere of “Slacker With A Death Wish” by Granddad. The Minneapolis by way of Alaska act are pleased to be announcing their second full length, Quitter, being released on August 17th via Brace Cove Records.
What Granddad bring to the table is a journey of emotional life lessons about the struggles of life, being relatable and personal. Their atypical, mind bending progressions are layered with beautifully woven guitars and roaming drums. With plenty of poise and a grandiose display of powerfully emotions, “Slacker With A Death Wish” breathes life into listeners by finding their core self and opening up. The vocals are constantly soaring over the winding instrumentals, tinged with a slight echo that helps give the cries a bit more depth; like finding the worst of your breakdown crying in the shower. Take a listen to this track below, enjoy the beautiful progressions and keep your head up.
“‘Slacker With a Death Wish’ is a song about self-doubt. It’s about changing your life. It’s an anthem for those who haven’t figured everything out yet.” – Granddad
Alaskan band Granddad has been hard at work since relocating to Minnesota. The band has maintained a heavy touring schedule across the United States, and shows no signs of slowing with the release of their new album, Quitter.
Written during a tumultuous year, Quitter captures post-graduate ennui and indecision in themes of love, sexuality, and personal growth. The album is full of hooks, heavy guitars, and confessional lyricism.
