Grand Cru release new single 'Shadows'


The Australian crew of pop rock performers known as Grand Cru have released their latest and most popular track to date, titled, “Shadows.” The track has been released internationally and is climbing charts on the World Wide Web such as Triple J's, where they had garnered the seventh spot with much upward momentum as of mid-September. The track is being concurrently released with its official music video, available soon. A subtle song with powerful undercurrents and unique overtones native to the Grand Cru sound alone, “Shadows” is certain to add yet another chapter to the five-piece ensemble from Melbourne's passionate cult following.

This Grand Cru sound resists efforts to categorize it for the sake of an easy description. It has the patient masculinity of 1990s alternative rock, the catchy grooviness of pop music, and elements even of traditional Irish music. They cite as main artistic influences bands such as Stereophonics, Pearl Jam, Iron and Wine, and Days of the New. Music by Grand Cru on is schizophrenically listed as folk, miscellaneous, pop, and rock, while simply pigeonholes them as indie pop. Listeners will say without fail that they have a driving, optimistic sound all their own.

The themes explored in “Shadows,” (not entirely unlike their popular single, “Wither”) are introspective in nature yet the anthem discusses something to which most of humanity can relate. When asked to describe the inherent message “Shadows” has in store for listeners, Grand Cru writes,

“A message of hope and perseverance in an otherwise difficult climate. We tackle the issues of depression and hardship with a view that all things can be overcome.”

With the World Health Organization approximating that 350 million persons currently suffer from depression worldwide, it seems certain that Grand Cru will be helping people leave their shadows through their particular brand of soul-stirring music all over the globe.

“Shadows” by Grand Cru is available online everywhere beginning October 2013.
