It’s safe to say that Sydney’s THE GRISWOLDS indie anthem “Heart of a Lion” put them on the map in 2012. The tequila inspired party-pop banger was heard on radio in over 20 countries including high rotation on Australia’s triple j and The Netherlands 3FM, jagging over ½ a million views and downloads online.
Forming in February , the band were triple j Unearthed feature artist and were quickly picked up by over 100 blogs around the globe simply by posting their first track ‘Mississippi’‘ online.
Despite pounding the sticky carpet for just twelve months, their meteoric rise is compounded by their reputation as being one of Australia’s hottest live acts.
With Homebake, Big Day Out, Parklife and Peats Ridge on their gig list as well as supports with the likes of San Cisco, Last Dinosaurs and Kids of 88, it’s their new single “The Courtship of Summer Preasley” that has cemented their momentum into 2013. Already since the calendar ticked over to welcome in their second year, the band have one of the most played tracks of the year on triple j, the iTunes Single of the Week in Europe, and have played support for Django Django.
The band have seen even more invitations from around the world, pointing to a manic local and international schedule this year which will see heavy touring to bring their dynamic live show to their increasingly global fanbase.
