Video Premiere: Grandchildren - "End Times"
Grandchildren began as a solo project for Philadelphia musician Aleks Martray, who layered his acoustic guitar with a loop pedal. Since its inception in 2008 the band has evolved to a six piece, releasing their latest album Golden Age just last week.
Golden Age was produced by Chris Powell (Man Man) and Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog), and the album draws on Martray’s many moves as a child of the military.
""I think when you live and travel all over the world from such a young age your mind constructs a sort of map that is an amalgamation of all of these different worlds," said Martray in a recent press release. “I see the music as a soundtrack for this puzzle-like landscape that otherwise would exist only in my head.”
