The Griswolds
Sydney-based four-piece The Griswolds have followed up their Heart Of A Lion EP with their debut full length Be Impressive, released this past August. Vocalist/guitarist Chris Whitehall describes the album, “We wanted to make a fun record that touches on deeper feelings we all have from time to time; that idea of balancing out maturing and wanting to have fun and live life the way you want to. Knowing that growing up can be painful, but those experiences add up to something fun. It’s about that cusp of being a carefree kid and an adult.” Download “Beware The Dog” from Be Impressive and learn more about The Griswolds at their Official Website, “Like” them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter.
