Brisbane easycore four-piece Grizzlyshark debuted their wholesome new single “TMS” last night on triple j Short.Fast.Loud and announce that it will be the first to drop from forthcoming EP, ‘MOSAIC‘, out Friday July 29.
Grizzlyshark welcome a stellar team of collaborators on “TMS”, including Troy Brady (The Amity Affliction, In Hearts Wake) on mixing and production as well as the legendary Alan Day of Four Year Strong as co-writer.
The new single is an experimental track that sets out to push an infectious pop punk sound against elements of mid-western emo and post hardcore. Heavily influenced by Tiny Moving Parts latest album, ‘breathe’, the track is about mutual breakups and acknowledging growth.
“TMS is about thanking people from your past that have shaped who you are today.” explains vocalist Andrew Taylor. “The chorus portrays a scenario where a pair who previously were tied romantically together meet after years apart as if they are strangers again. In this, they still wish each other well but acknowledge that the other no longer is what they want for themselves. A different spin on the old breakup song.”
Like a boisterous bolt of lightning exploding across the sky, Brisbane easycore heroes Grizzlyshark bring sturdy pop persuasions and potent punk to the table, fusing ferocity with rollicking finesse. Wielding punchy riffs and rhythms alongside infectious anthems and hooks, Grizzlyshark first announced themselves to the world back in 2018, beginning their production journey with Troy Brady on their debut release ‘RESTART’.
While 2020 brought new releases, including the certified banger “Vicarious”, 2022 is set to further intensify the burgeoning Grizzlyshark adventure, with their latest and greatest chapter ready to unfold with ‘MOSAIC’; a powerful collection of Grizzly tunes brimming with audacious yet insightful lyricism, pop culture and gaming nods, plus plenty of bangin’ anthems to eclipse genres and expectations.
“TMS” will be available and streaming everywhere tomorrow Friday May 6. The ‘MOSAIC’ EP will be available Friday July 29.
