The Griswolds

Yes, Australian indie pop band The Griswolds ARE named after the cinematic family we all know and love from the National Lampoon’s Vacation films. These self-described chameleons of pop reportedly found each other just the way a band should — by working out a sound-defining riff that became their first single. In the few years since that fortuitous collaboration, the band has toured extensively and in good company (Passion Pit, Django Django, San Cisco), and now the States is starting to catch on as their catchy melodies and huge choruses hit our shores.

Featured song: “Heart Of A Lion”
