The Albertan outfit continues to push itself to greater heights.
Grim is a rock & roll band out of Alberta that's been building a buzz recently with their refreshing brand of loose and fast southern Rock N' Roll sound.
Inspired by their hometown heroes Dusty Tucker, they were formed in the winter of 2015 by brothers Alex and Ryan Grimberg. Initially turning heads with the release of their self-titled album in 2019, they've since gone from strength to strength.
They've spent their time honing their skills through grinding the local tour and the studio, and as a result, every glimpse we've gotten of their upcoming sophomore album "Grim II" indicates it's going to be one for the ages.
There's something freeing about good, fast, and loose rock n' roll. Grim think on the same wavelength, as their releases have been imbued with the spirit of good old southern rock n' roll since their debut. Grim has undoubtedly set a high standard, with songs like "The Old Saloon" and "Blood" setting an impressive precedent for their releases. They've impressively managed to keep it, though, and with "Grim II" on the horizon, they've been even more laser focused than usual.
"Funk Jam," one of Grim's latest releases and the second single from "Grim II," is a rousing rock n' roll ode to life and the grind. Over soaring and uplifting rock n' roll instrumentals that fittingly incorporate an ever so slight hint of funk,
Grim makes lyrics like "Out late, up early / The clock read 11:30 / it was hot and unnerving" and "It was dark as she was talkin' / The eyes burn holes through me / Jack D or Jimmy bean / don't matter much to me" sound exhilarating. It's a perfect introduction to Grim's witty and special artistic abilities, and we can't wait to see what else they show us on "Grim II."
Alberta's Grim continues to blaze their trail in the scene brightly, and with their new release, "Funk Jam," they seem to be getting better and better with each release. Whenever you're ready, tap in and stream Grim's new release, "Funk Jam."
