Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to The Grinning Barretts. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the energy unleashed by their music.
The sound of this band is really interesting as these guys have managed to masterfully mix modern elements with ethnic melodies.
A really intriguing mix that is able to make them stand out from the crowd. It’s as if their music was a horde of Irish warriors from the 1800s running at you in black studded jackets and mohawk hair.
You can feel that The Grinning Barretts spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room to achieve such enviable musical chemistry.
We are faced with great musicians who have decided to follow their instincts and not the usual commercial rules in composing their songs.
This Ep is a wild ride that manages to awaken your free and rock spirit.
