Greta Van Fleet
Say hello to one of the most exciting new bands to come into the music scene in the recent years, say hello to Greta Van Fleet. The guys come at us with their latest single “When the curtain falls” and it is without a doubt perfection. They bring a certain old-school charm that is reminiscent of a band that they have already been compared to, it’s pretty clear who (the great Led Zeppelin if you had not guessed already), but they also add their own personal layer and brand of sound that is exciting and mesmerizing to find. This young and incredibly talented ensemble hits it right on the mark with every single guitar riff, hit of the drum, flow of the bass and rebel yell that personally makes them bound for greatness. They have a charm and passion in their melodies and lyrics that is rare to find nowadays and it is clear that they possess what many call the “it” factor.
The song tells a tale of the rise and fall of a Hollywood starlet who once had it all and now falls from grace and it is told in a poetic and surreal way. The verses show each stage of this misadventure and how through this all she is still a sight to behold, even she might need a little help. The soundscape is a reminder of what rock once was and what it should aim to be once more through a style that is old school yet few know that this requires the most talent and will to improve. The guys embrace each note with a will of fire and let’s not forget they are still young and being compared to one of the greats is a feat few can claim. You are bound to be completely taken by this song and I am sure you’ll become a fan just like I have. So stay put, stay quiet and let their fire spread through all your senses. Enjoy!
Fun Fact: “When the curtain falls” is the first single from their upcoming full-length debut album.
