After a massive year in 2016 of break-through gigs and recording time, Cheshire Grimm is ready to drop its unique sound of psychedelic-pop-rock with its second album and brand-new masterpiece: Rain or Shine. The band has hit us with a fresh five track EP that really captures the band’s energy and diversity. Blending grungy rock with catchy psychedelic funk, this group has the knack for bending its favourite music genres to suit its stylistic flavour.
Rain or Shine was co-produced by Ben King (Golden Horse, Brooke Fraser, Dave Dobbyn) and Recorded/Mixed by Paul Lawrence at Roundhead Studios/Revaulting Records in Auckland, New Zealand. Lora Thompson and Kat Waswo’s captivating chemistry comes full circle in this mesmerizing collection of songs that infiltrate the mind with their philosophical-melancholy lyrics and colourful, catchy riffs.
With a solid, heavy drum sound courtesy of local legend Sam Holdom (Skinny Hobos) and a touch of keyboard and Saxophone from Melbournites Graeme ‘Wily’ Bell and Aaron Searle, this EP sounds bigger than the band has ever sounded before.
To celebrate the EP’s release in late February 2017, the band will be embarking on a summer tour throughout Australia and New Zealand. Starting at Luminate Festival in Golden Bay (Nelson), the three-piece will be teaming up with Auckland rockers Skinny Hobos for a dual-band Aussie Tour, finishing up with a trip around the North Island (NZ). Cheshire Grimm is also joining forces with Melbourne’s progressive metaller’s Logic Defies Logic, and Sydney groove rockers Rufflefeather – making for an eclectic mix of Australasia’s rising alternative talent.
