Move over Sparky, there's a new Griswold clan with their eye on a United States adventure. Recent Wind-up Records signees, Australia's The Griswolds
, are set to release their Heart of a Lion EP
in the States on September 3rd, and we're pleased to be sharing the exclusive stream of all four tracks. Upon our earliest listen, we notice this group seemingly has a penchant for pop similar to that of Mrs. Magician. However, as with all things Australian, their music gleams with tropical imagery. A personal favorite on the EP, "Mississippi", takes you to an aquatic world much clearer than the river they sing of; you buoy through twinkling synth with summery pitched sing-alongs.
The Griswolds are expected to follow Heart of a Lion
with a full-length release early next year.
