Fabulously named Melbourne guitar-slingers The Grogans (look it up) will be causing a big stink when they play their first ever Aotearoa headline shows in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch this coming August. Fresh from supporting Hockey Dad‘s sold out Australian tour, the rising trio dropped their brand new psych / surf / blues anthem ‘Inside My Mind‘ yesterday — along with appropriately vibey visuals / installation footage by Nathaniel Stewart, directed by Jackson Hayat. Experience the single below and don’t miss The Grogans with special guests at the following dates…
“Inside my mind is a track that has been around for years. I believe it was written sometime between 2016/2017. This song is based on that anxious feeling you might get from making up irrational things in your head but understanding they are just fake perceptions you’ve created. The whole song (lyrically and sonically) is a different feel for this album following the last two singles, but our albums tend to normally dip into a few different genres, reflecting the three of our different influences.” – The Grogans

Fresh from a massive sold out Australian tour supporting garage party duo Hockey Dad, Melbourne raconteurs The Grogans are psyched to be hitting Aotearoa’s shore’s for the first time. Touring as part of their biggest Australasian headline tour to date and in support of their brand new single ‘Inside My Mind’ the tour kicks off at Mono Nights in Christchurch, followed by Auckland’s renowned Whammy Bar before wrapping up at Meow in Wellington.
Filling the big shoes of the trio’s recent success with their 7’’ double A-side singles ‘Just A Kid’ and ‘Be Your Man’—collectively added to Spotify’s New Music Friday AU & NZ, Fresh Finds AU & NZ and Local Noise playlists, ‘Inside My Mind’ continues The Grogans’ prolifically inventive and pigeonhole-defying style in a bluesy psych trip of epic proportions.
Out now via Cousin Will Records in tandem with a kaleidoscopic new video accompaniment, ‘Inside My Mind’ navigates perceived misconceptions and irrational thoughts in a woozy fuzz fest of swampy blues and surf psych. The song’s lucrative reverberations and hazy delay are exemplified by the Jackson Hayat directed clip with glistening colourful visuals by Nathaniel Stewart in a fever dream feast for the senses.
Having just completed a massive sold out Australian tour with Hockey Dad, as well as performing at Sailor Jerry’s Road to Rolling Stone concert alongside Eliza & The Delusionals and The Terrys, The Grogans are in fine form and raring to go for their biggest tour to date kicking off this June across three months at major cities across Australia and New Zealand. Do not miss your chance to catch this rising chameleon act as they perform songs from their expansive surf, punk, blues and reggae catalog this winter.
