Brooding Birmingham band, Grim Disco, have released post-punk track ‘Give and Go’ today, premiering the song exclusively on The Indiependent.
It’s a construction which is dripping with ambience and attitude from start to finish, with the same sinister undertone which is apparent in a vast proportion of Echo & the Bunnymen’s discography. The pulsating melody, punctuated by crashing cymbals, perfectly complements frontman David Damms’ vocal. Fellow band members – Arran Berrill (guitar), Byron James (bass) and Louis O’Reilly (drums) – layer their respective components to create a song which is truly enthralling from start to finish.
Grim Disco’s support slot with Sheffield’s Best Friends, in Birmingham on Saturday 18th July, is bound to be one of many successful support slots and tours. Here at the Indiependent we have every confidence that Grim Disco – despite their name – will put on a show which is exponentially more enjoyable than your Y6 school disco. If they’re touring near you, be sure to catch them.
