Rahhhrrr! Grun to me sounds like the name of a big bad goblin from a fantasy novel… but no, apparently its German for ‘Green’. The Sydney experimental four peice were orginally known as Greenland, the title of their debut LP, so it all makes sense.

‘Greenland’ shows off Grun‘s ability to rock out, provide intricate melodies and retreat into quiter piano lead moments. Plus singer Katy Wren provides some guest vocals to several songs on a predominately instrumental album. The melodies are more absorbing in the album’s quiter moments but I love the balls out rock crescendos, ‘Imperfect’ is one example.

Grun‘s ‘Greenland’ is available now through Laughing Outlaw Records and they are offering their first EP ‘The Prisons Of Language’ with a limited edition version of the album from their website, here. Ohh, and did I mention the top shelf artwork…
