Grizfolk are back after two years with their self-titled album and third studio LP. Alt-rockers, based in Los Angeles and Nashville with roots in Sweden, have shared a lush collection of music that displays a billow of confidence.
The 10-track LP sees emotionally-charged lyricism and powerful delivery, especially on the song “Fumes.” The band explained the sentiment behind the song: “’Fumes’ is a song made for the people. The ones that don’t feel like they are being heard, the ones who feel lost and overseen. It’s a voice for the voiceless. For those who want to speak up or take action but can’t.”
“It’s about overcoming fears and being confident to show your true self.”
Altogether the record is a refreshing blend of rock, folk and country that work well together through various creative approaches.

Grizfolk began creating the album after being inspired by a band retreat in Joshua Tree. They had to press pause due to the pandemic but were able to bring in producer Rich Costey (Muse, The Killers, Barns Courtney) for the tracks, “Queen of the Desert” and “California High” just before lockdown.
Their debut album Waking Up The Giants from back in 2015 launched them onto the scene, providing them a good following early on. The newest album is a follow-up to their 2019 second studio LP, Rarest of Birds.
