GRMLN Covers Vampire Weekend, LP Out June 4th

Grmln covers Vampire Weekend, upcoming album 'Empire' coming out in June on Carpark Records

Last month, GRMLN released the track “Teenage Rhythm” to introduce his upcoming debut LP ‘Empire’. Now enjoy a cover of Vampire Weekend’s “The Kids Don’t Stand A Chance” As Yoodoo shares, “my album is more focused on live instruments, as well as being more aggressive and abrasive compared to my earlier stuff and this cover. I just made this song so people can relax and zone out to hopefully.”

Empire is GRMLN’s album for the cruisin world: Upbeat rock ‘n’ roll with the feel of ’90s pop-punk. The nine songs (all but two are under three minutes) were recorded and mixed in a span of five days at Different Fur Studios in San Francisco with Patrick Brown and Sean Paulson (Toro Y Moi’s Anything In Return). Lyrically, Empire is a look into 20-year-old Yoodoo’s head as he deals with growing up and how that complicates relationships. “I see the world going by without me/ it’s just the way that I’m moving back to you,” he sings on “Blue Lagoon.” Yoodoo notes that while writing the album he matured out of a phase of naïveté, consequently becoming disillusioned with love.
