The Grip Weeds
The Sound In You
Rainbow Quartz
Released in July 2003, this CD successfully merges ‘60s R&B-influenced rock with ‘90s Britpop to create a modern sound with brilliant melodies and catchy hooks. Nods to bands like The Beatles, The Who, The Byrds and Oasis come through loud and clear – a fact they openly admit on their press release. There’s also a bit of a post-mod/pre-hippie psychedelic influence flowing throughout the album, giving it a smooth and sweet texture. It’s not just a nostalgia trip though; the songs don’t simply imitate bands of the past. The band takes inspiration from the greats and develops uniquely well-crafted pieces that may leave you tapping your feet and bobbing your head. - Andrew Ring
