Seattle indie rockers Great Grandpa put out their new single “Digger” on September 11th. “Digger” is the second single (following August’s “Mono no Aware”) off their upcoming record Four Of Arrows, due out October 25th via Double Double Whammy.
“Digger” is a somber track that starts with the calming strumming of an acoustic guitar accompanied with vocalist Alex Menne’s emotive, dreamy vocal melodies. Clocking in at just under five minutes, “Digger” is a vast mountain range of musical dynamics. From soaring chorus melodies laden with fuzzy, feedback-heavy guitars to reverby verses, with a healthy dose of intricate acoustic guitar arrangements, “Digger” holds back nothing.
Four Of Arrows drops this Friday (10/25) and will be available on all major streaming services. The band is currently touring on the west coast in support of the new record. Their next performance will be this weekend, taking the stage for two nights in a row at The Chapel in San Francisco on the 25th and the 26th.
