Wakey Wakey is a Brooklyn-based alt-pop group fronted by Michael Grubbs. Grubbs’ project first achieved recognition when the title track of his War Sweater EP was featured on the hit TV show One Tree Hill, on which Grubbs subsequently made several cameos. Now, the band is set to release their forthcoming Overreactivist full-length, out February 26.
Grubbs stopped by the Paste Studio recently to record a few songs from his repertoire. Watch Grubbs’ performance of Wakey Wakey’s “Heartbroke” above, as well as “Homeless Poets,” “Golden,” “Overreactivist,” and “Lean On” below.
