Hi! Lisa writing to you all. Today on the blog I wanted to tell you about some of my favorite up and coming grunge bands. Anyone who is into grunge rock is familiar with some of the most popular bands including Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots and The Smashing Pumpkins. So instead of focusing on what you know, I wanted to let you know about who you may not be aware of.
- The Garage Grungers
With a name like this, you know this is going to a grunge band. I love the sound that this band has. It sounds like old school grunge music, with a refreshing and modern twist. Unfortunately this band is really new, so they don’t have top of the line equipment. However, if you are looking to follow a band’s journey from the bottom on up, start listening to this group.
- Screaming Souls
Screaming Souls is a local band that can be found playing at many local music venues. They often play for smaller crowds, giving intimate and haunting performances. Their lead singer is filled with emotion and gives gut wrenching and emotion inducing performances. If music speaks to you, this group is speaking your language.
- Not Your Brother’s Rockband
The last local grunge band I want to highlight is Not Your Brother’s Rockband. This band writes their own music, and if you really listen to the words, you will find many sarcastic overtures about the world we live in today. Many of the lyrics are funny, but unless you pay close attention, you may not pick up on it. I enjoy having to think and really pay attention while listening to their witty songs and I’m sure you will enjoy it as well, which is why I recommend you check them out.
