Macrogrizzly are a Carlow, Ireland based fourpiece formed in 2009. The band play the odd live gig as well as more often, web gigs from their Shed – an innovative way to promote themselves though it does seem to be slowly catching on as a format.
Their music has been described as ‘poppy’ by some, ’80s’ by some more and ‘the kind of thing experimental aliens might well have attempted’ by others, but either way, the band have quite a lot of tunes, varying from electronica to rock. Macrogrizzly do seem to have a unique take on writing and recording music, working away in their Shed regardless of what the current musical ‘trend’ is. It may sound clichéd, but to this band, writing the music is first and foremost.
Getting people to listen to it comes in a poor second. Recently signed to Canadian label MusikAtomik, Macrogrizzly fully intend to take their experimental alien 80s poppy tunes and put them on an album sometime in 2011. Maybe.
