GRUMBY / Press

"Grumby is ready to score your next one night stand. There’s a type of electronica that works well at a pre-gaming session; during that unexpected-but-much-needed one night stand and throughout a party aftermath the next day. A perfect example is “Refuse”—a new silky soultronic single from NYC-based duo Grumby that features sensual vocals from Hari Mint. Grumby are currently working on more breezy bangers and promise to drop a new EP on April 5, but right now you can relax to their latest effort, “Changes...”

“GRUMBY might be an act new to some listeners, but the Brooklyn-based duo has been churning out ingenious works for over two years now, as they team up with fellow vocalist Häri Mint on new track "Refuse". The distinct timbre of Mint's voice on the track is what's instantly noticeable on it, and, especially alongside the crafty, polished production put forth, it works well. The instrumental is one that's present, too, but far from overwhelming, as thick, twinkling percussive melodies bolster the vocal efforts that we hear. "Refuse", by all accounts, is a success, and, as the first work from their debut Changes EP, we're entirely excited to hear more.”

“Mysterious Brooklyn electronica duo GRUMBY, who made our recent list of Best Emerging NYC Artists, produces evocative and free music. Emancipated from danceability and structural concerns, their tunes introduce the listener to a world of beautiful sonic encounters, unexpected aural developments, and tasteful textures. The most striking of their recent tracks are eastern sounding single 'Sultana Melek' (our favorite one, streaming), which showcases a noteworthy production and attention to the detail, and "Yoshi's Penthouse," which sounds like an exercise in electro-lounge. This track confirm our suspicion that today's electronica is filling in for that genre you may remember your grandparents mentioning, called jazz (and all its derivatives), i.e. music that's more losely structured than pop and relies heavily on improvisation - whether recorded or live.”

“New York City has a big up and comer on their hands in the form of GRUMBY. The group, a part of the artist collective halfbad, broke out with the moody “MT. FUJI” two years ago, and are now prepping for their debut EP release. Out September 15th, Changes includes an impressive selection of their original atmospheric tracks, including the EP’s lead single, “Refuse.””

“Steeped in emotion, Grumby's "Used 2 Want U" is a restlessly moody piece of electronic production. Beginning with harps and rich piano chords, the Brooklyn duo at first weave slow but heavy-handed drums into the track, before eventually double-timing the pace with energetic claps and rising percussion rolls. Led by the soulful chops of a re-pitched voice, "Used 2 Want U" rises and falls in grand sweeps during its run, each section offering a new bit of sharp percussion, a touching melody, or a wash of floating pads.”

“Fusing together IDM sounds with hazy, jazz-filled electronica often found in the production of many UK bass contemporaries, Brooklyn-based duo GRUMBY delivers Mt. Fuji - a mesmerizing single dedicated to the mystical Japanese mountain.”
