As a metalhead, I always find it refreshing to hear something different. When I first listened to The Grand Minnows I felt calm. I didn't want to mosh, headbang or get a skull tattooed on my fist. I just wanted to listen to the music and enjoy the moment. Now to some, this might be hard to do, but tune into this Swedish/American Indie Rock band's 2nd EP and you will see exactly what I mean.

The members of The Grand Minnows have all been in established bands before and their experience in this 3 track EP is evident throughout these tracks. They are simple, but effective. They get you contemplating, wondering. It's thoughtful music, very calming and very mature. If you are a regular metalhead, then you might turn your nose at something like this, but having these 3 tracks on your iPod is recommended. It will change your day and slow things down. Give them a listen, you will not regret it. Tell me if you agree with me in the comments.

Currently organising the production of a music video, and more tracks expected in May/June time. 

You can hear this album on their Bandcamp, and I recommend that you do as well as keep up to date with their latest stuff on their FaceBook
