Grandson is regarded as one of the most promising upcoming acts within alternative music, having an eccentric style of rock and punk mixed with hip hop, beats and electronic music.
An edgy riff, a rough intermezzo with trap beats: Grandson shows he’s worth all of the praise through his songs. In every single composition there’s a rock element that works wonders on his audience and their eagerness to cut loose. Exhibit A: his Pinkpop show in 2022. A Grandson live show also means to obey and to cut loose. Using personal lyrics that deal with heavy subjects like addiction, mental health and struggles with everyday life, the music of this Canadian singer-songwriter truly come to life.
Soon the new album “I Love You, I’m Trying”, which is his most personal and vulnerable record so far. It’s the successor to success album “Death of an Optimist” from 2020. You may also remember his name from his single ‘Rain’, which he wrote with Jessie Reyez for the film The Suicide Squad.
Bob Vylan will join as support, which is one of the most promising modern crossover punk bands and which is an evolution we simply love to see within harder genres. Of the New Wave of British Punk, Bob Vylan is definitely one of the most original ones with their mix of punk, rapcore and society-critical lyrics. Bob Vylan uses live shows to channel underlying anger and frustrations in a healthy way. It results in terrific live shows, as their show at Valkhof 2022 demonstrated.
