Grandkids, Wilder Maker, Half Gringa
3734 W Belmont Ave, Chicago, IL 60618, USA
Grandkids have discovered a singular combination of indie, rock, jazz, and pop that makes one want to dance and cry—not necessarily at the same time. But the emotion is there. The groove is there. The musicianship from these longtime friends and collaborators is apparent in the execution of fine-penned songs. Noisy guitars, smooth cello lines, and insane beats and dynamics are all brought to life at will, as the four become Grandkids with each song, like a flower endlessly blooming.
A cosmic American band from Brooklyn, NY. Wilder Maker is mapping the world one corner at a time.
Half Gringa is the songwriting project of Izzy Olive. An emotional scab-picker, her work explores the confluence of Latinx and Midwestern identity.
