The Grogans ‘Just What You Want’—Album Review In Brief

November 8, 2019

In early October, Melbourne surf-Rock band The Grogans released their debut album Just What You Want. It’s the album you didn’t know you needed.

The three-piece band began jamming during high school, where they met in 2016—drawing upon influences from different genres: their sound features driving grunge guitars, hints of laid-back blues and reggae rhythms. With only two guitarists and a drummer —and no bassist— this band is unconventional.

The band performed their new song ‘No Sleep’ at a single launch in late September. This song is an instant hit and I am excited to see where this band goes in the future.

The band is going on their first National Tour of Australia to promote their new album — so make sure to catch them at their upcoming gigs! Here is a list of their tour:
