Grandparents
This is what happens when Brian Wilson, Anton Newcombe, and Kevin Shields take off their clothes and have sex in a cacophony of sound. The product of their love is the Grandparents, rolling along a tape track of bends, twisting tones, and sweet-sweet harmonies drenching the listener in the warm syrupy tones of their minds. Formed in 2009 when an old group of friends met new ones in dorms across Portland, Oregon. Their love of sonic experimentation and manipulation has resulted in pure psychedelic swoons that reflect the love of their namesake. Read more about Grandparents on Last.fm.
