It’s no wonder that Grand Cousin is currently the most popular band
at Wesleyan University, alma mater of star alumni MGMT, Santigold,
and Das Racist. The band has spent its four years together wowing
audiences with unrivaled falsetto vocals, irresistible pop melodies,
and a raw rock sound.
Wesleyan is certainly no stranger to breakout talent, but Grand
Cousin is in a league all its own. Influenced by acts ranging from
Radiohead and The Smiths to Frank Ocean and Marvin Gaye, this
ahead-of-their-years college trio walks the line between
idiosyncratic and accessible alternative pop.
Best friends since freshman year, Henry Hall (songwriter/vocals/
guitar), Robby Caplan (bass), and Evan Low (drums) began their
career playing sweaty live shows and building a devoted fan base
before releasing a self-produced five song demo on SoundCloud in
In 2013, the trio released “Camera” and “Let Me Know,” its first
two singles on iTunes, which were accompanied by viral-ready
music videos that have attracted thousands of views. “Camera”
features a thick groove and an irresistible, heavy hook, and “Let Me
Know” proves once and for all that you can, in fact, dance your ass
off to indie rock.
Currently playing sold-out headline slots at NYC’s most popular
venues, Grand Cousin continues to gain momentum and shows no
signs of slowing down as the band gears up for the early-Spring
release of its debut EP and a major east coast tour.
