Los Angeles-based rock band Grizfolk unveil a catchy but introspective new single titled “Heavy Crown,” premiering solely on Billboard at this time (Jan. 24).
The music’s retro vibe fuels its contemplative lyrics: “What sort of river we ridin’ on, what sort of experience can we roll?/ Which means can we go when the bridge is gone, who’s behind these lies we’ve been advised?/ Be a light-weight in a chilly, chilly, chilly world.”
Grizfolk explains that the music’s underlying that means displays a tricky stretch of their lives. "'Heavy Crown' is a mirrored image of what we have been feeling throughout one of many hardest stretches of our lives,” the band tells Billboard. “We’ve been via loads since our first album was launched, each personally and collectively as a band, and it appeared like others felt related sentiments of turmoil and unrest. This music is about making the selection, regardless of all of the negativity round us, to be a light-weight in a chilly world.”
The new music comes on the heels of the current launch of their eclectic song “Spoonful.” They launched their debut LP, Waking Up The Giants, again in 2016, and have spent current years touring round with acts like Bastille, X Ambassadors, Twenty One Pilots.
