The Grogans are back, announcing their next National Australian tour in support of their latest album ‘Day / To / Day’ released in November 2020.
Recorded at Grogans HQ and out in Ocean Grove, ‘Day / To / Day’ had the opportunity to come together outside of Melbourne, with Ocean Grove providing an idyllic relaxed setting for The Grogans to settle into. Spending their time making music, skating and hanging out made the album process far easier an experience to get through; with new ideas and sonic sessions coming naturally for the band over time.
“[The recording process] same as what we usually do; a couple of months writing, then we take a week off and lock ourselves away to get the majority of the recording done, then polish it up with added tracks at Grogs HQ. This time was in Ocean Grove, which was really relaxing. We’d surf, skate and just hang out without too much structure to the recording.” The Grogans
The laidback jam session vibe is captured and refined into a more realised and cohesive LP format by vocalist and guitarist Quin Grunden, who recorded and mixed the album. The pacing of Day / To / Day makes this great for road trips or long days hanging out in summer heat; ‘Gravel Road Blues’ and ‘Takin’ It Easy’ demonstrate slight psych influences in the band’s guitar and rhythm progressions.
Previous singles ‘Got A Girl’ and ‘Dead Weight’ are two examples of The Grogans’ dynamism as a unit, with further highlights of their harmonies and melody construction shining across ‘Unnecessary’, ‘Graveyard Sleepin’ and ‘Strange Feeling’.
This will be the band’s first national tour since November 2019, following the release of their debut album ‘Just What You Want’.
