It’s been roughly 3 years since we’ve heard from Japan by way of Southern California’s GRMLN, and 5 years since I wrote about GRMLN’s debut EP Explore for this very blog. Needless to say, we’re thrilled to announce that their new EP Discovery will be self-released on April 7th. We’re even more thrilled to premiere that EP’s lead single “27 Kids.”
The track is an exuberant blast of power pop excellence, complete with beautifully layered “ahhs,” and “na na nas.” This brilliantly compliments lyrics which celebrate the positive political activism currently being enacted by so many young people. This one will make you think (almost) as much as it makes you bounce.
