Gross Relations is a Brooklyn-based foursome who play lo-fi pop songs that are highly catchy and short on saccharine. With plenty of fuzz and lackadaisically-delivered lyrics reeled in by insistent, irresistible riffs, GR have a certain swagger that’s earning them frequent gigs and adulation. You’ll find moody rockers with as many upbeat notes as pent-up emotions followed by anthems for the romantically resigned, despondent dude in all of us. Through all the subtleties and polish of their tracks, they never lose the sound of intoxicated friends trying to find their space-time continuum. Think Beat Happening meets Brooklyn meets bad ass bros. Look out for more Relations buzz—it’s infectious.
“Sometimes it’s fun to listen to songs that sound like your speakers just crapped out on you. That’s rock ‘n roll, bro!” - Oh My Rockness
“On [‘You Don’t Know Me’] they really shine with those seasick keys charging in full bore and a nice touch of fuzz on the vox…the hook sticks in your head like a whiskey-coated knife.” - Raven Sings the Blues
