GREAT GRANDPA:
"With its debut single from its upcoming LP, Plastic Cough, the Seattle indie-rock band Great Grandpa doesn't ignore the gracelessness of youth. It embraces it...'Teen Challenge' doesn't sound like a band's first attempt — musically, it exudes a maturation not always associated with adolescence — but the concept comes to fruition in the song's lyricism." -Maria Sherman, NPR

ABOUT GREAT GRANDPA
"Great Grandpa began in Seattle in 2014 when guitarist & vocalist Patrick Goodwin
recruited bassist Carrie Miller, drummer Cam LaFlam, and vocalist Alex Menne to form a humble rock band. Inspired by the pop-sensible alternative rock of the 90’s, and offset by
a mutual love for noise and math rock, the group set forth to write and record their first
EP.


During recording, guitarist Dylan Hanwright joined the group, solidifying the lineup. Great
Grandpa began performing in the Seattle area in late 2014, frequenting the city’s DIY
venues. In March of 2015, their debut EP Can Opener was released on Broken World
Media. The EP was met with considerable praise, and has been described as “warm,
slightly off-kilter grunge pop”, and “knotty, twisted, and warm rock music that’s as
melodically satisfying as it is, at times, confounding”.


Great Grandpa began writing their debut LP soon after, and found themselves touring
the western US and performing extensively in the Seattle area. Written in 2015 and
2016, Great Grandpa’s debut LP Plastic Cough continues to explore the sonic territory
visited in Can Opener, exhibiting infectious melodies across a range of backdrops, from
quiet bedroom-pop to explosive, anthemic rock. Plastic Cough is out July 7th via Double
Double Whammy." -Artist Bio
