Brisbane easycore four-piece Grizzlyshark offer up their dynamic third single, “There’s No ‘I’ In Quaranteam“ from upcoming debut EP, ‘MOSAIC‘, out Friday July 29.
Once again mixed and produced by Troy Brady (The Amity Affliction, In Hearts Wake), the third single from ‘MOSAIC‘ is a thoughtful emo punk journey, exploring a darker side of Grizzlyshark. Thematically the track tackles growing up with an absentee parent and ultimately how it affects a child.
“This is the darkest song on the EP,” says vocalist Andrew Jeffery. “While not directly experienced by myself, I have witnessed countless friends, band mates and students I teach feel the impact of a parent who has left.”
“Joey [McLennan, bass/vocals] and I teamed up on this one as he has personal experience. Working together on lyrics was a fun experience and something we don’t do as often as I would like. I’m proud of the imagery in the lyrics for this song.“
Previous single “TMS” was the first wholesome taste of the forthcoming EP, co-written by the legendary Alan Day of Four Year Strong, debuting on triple j Short.Fast.Loud. “TMS” is an experimental track that sets out to meld infectious pop punk sounds against elements of mid-western emo and post hardcore. Heavily influenced by Tiny Moving Parts latest album, ‘breathe‘, the track is about mutual breakups and acknowledging growth. Watch here.
“What’s The Plan Gogglehead” came next. The single is a thrashing pop punk offering that explores thoughts and emotions when living with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Vocalist Andrew noticed that his experiences living with ADHD could be compared to the quirky portrayal of various animated protagonists. Watch here.
Grizzlyshark bring sturdy pop persuasions and potent punk to the table, fusing ferocity with rollicking finesse. Wielding punchy riffs and rhythms alongside infectious anthems and hooks, Grizzlyshark first announced themselves to the world back in 2018.
While 2020 brought new releases, including the certified banger “Vicarious“, 2022 is set to further intensify the burgeoning Grizzlyshark adventure, with their latest and greatest chapter ready to unfold with ‘MOSAIC’; a powerful collection of Grizzly tunes brimming with audacious yet insightful lyricism, pop culture and gaming nods, plus plenty of bangin’ anthems to eclipse genres and expectations.
“There’s No ‘I’ In Quaranteam“, “What’s The Plan Gogglehead” and “TMS” are available and streaming everywhere now. The ‘MOSAIC‘ EP will be available Friday July 29.
