This year has been one for the books for Atlanta indie rock outfit Grand Vapids. OK, so technically it’s their first full year together, but the quintet has been nonetheless busy throughout 2014. In addition to touring the country alongside the likes of Pure Bathing Culture and White Violet, the group spent time in the studio with producer Drew Vandenberg (Deerhunter, Of Montreal). Those sessions led to their debut full-length, Guarantees, which will be released on January 20th, 2015 via Mumblecore.
The record’s latest single, “Aubade”, sounds like the whimsical result of a young band experimenting in the studio setting. The pulsing drums and echoing vocal effects create a sense of constant movement in the track; nothing is ever hurried, and each moving part feels defined and purposeful. Listen in below.
