The Gromble Share New Single 'Don't Stand A Chance' [Listen]

Closely following recent hit single 'Slam', the Gromble return with 'Don't Stand A Chance' - a chorus-less allegory / orchestrally-backed inferiority complex! An equal nod to modern synth-pop and Siamese Dream-era Smashing Pumpkins, with an outro ripped straight from Randy Newman's fake book..

"I think the main sonic focus of the track is the marriage between old and new." says Spencer from the band. "The artificiality of the computer curated drum beat, with the five piece string section played raw and very live, tracked all together on an indoor basketball court. The synth-pad juxtaposing a clean electric guitar, etc. As a stand-alone single, throughout its three movements it gives the best representation of who we are as a band. From the quiet stuff with the more grooving beat, to the heavy 90s alt guitar, and the big harmony stuff. Lyrically it's about the ever-elusive nature of success, and the Sisyphean struggle to fit in that everybody faces in one way or another."

Hailing from the warm shores of California, the five-piece have established the kind of rare synchronicity that has helped them carve out a charming blend of orchestral alt-folk and indie rock, honed live supporting such acts as The Lemonheads. With the classical intensity of early greats Pavement, Weezer and Neutral Milk Hotel and a taste for the heartland classics, they arrive somewhere between Grouplove, Miniature Tigers, and Vampire Weekend. They take their name from a character in Nickelodeon's Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, a perfect indicator of their unashamed love for 90's pop culture and for the sense of humour that runs beneath the surface of their songs.

This is music for when you're coming of age, music to soundtrack the best years of your life. The Gromble provide something different for everyone in their refreshing refusal to settle for the status quo. As such, they've already been championed by such reputable names as VICE, Gold Flake Paint, KROQ, and Indie Shuffle.
