It’s been a few years since we last caught up with the Philadelphia-based orchestral indie pop band, Grandchildren. Aleks Martray’s compositions have remained the core of the band as the form of the group has evolved over the past decade. These days, with vocalist Shari Amanda’s captivating performance in the mix, the band has pulled back on some of the instrumental bells and whistles (not *actual* bells and whistles, necessarily) and refocused on their songwriting and performance, creating a truly unique blend that stays true to the project’s roots while taking it to an entirely new level of enjoyment.
ZUNI by Grandchildren is available now from Ernest Jenning.
