Grandparents work on new EP + play PDX Pop Now!

As they experiment with different ways of articulating their taste for shoegaze and psychedelia, Grandparents's sound seems to get deeper and catchier by the record. Developing this blend since 2009, they revealed last month what is probably their sharpest effort to date. And they know it! Teasing the crowds with 'Bitches', $100 single offered to those who bought their poster at Mississippi Studios on June 27th, the band is as we speak working on an EP to be released by the end of summer. Slow, repetitive track coming in warm monotonous waves, 'Bitches' is a powerful introduction to the record to come. We'll let you know more as the time approaches, but for now, you can catch them at PDX Pop Now! Festival 2012!- Tracy Mamoun
