On November 3, alt-rock quartet Grizfolk, comprised of lead vocalist Adam Roth, Sebastian Fritze on the keys, guitarist Fredrik Eriksson, and Billy Delia on the drums, returns with the cinematic and evocative track, “Medicine Man.” Touching on escapism and the human desire to change the way we feel, “Medicine Man” uses a warbling bass groove, combined with an anthemic chorus, accented by powerful airy loops, and the fun auditory brilliance of their natural sound.
Adam of Grizfolk comments on the lyricism of the piece, “One line stuck out, ‘I’m a prisoner here, in paradise … .A lot of us feel that way sometimes. You’re happy on the outside, but you’re struggling inside. You’re searching for anything to change this uncomfortable feeling.”
Grizfolk’s latest album, Grizfolk, is an epic collection of songs built through multiple creative approaches to fit into a single moment of all-encompassing luster and artful, powerful, and fun auditory brilliance. It succeeds as a mix of both of the worlds their previous albums created, and in many ways, it achieves the sound the band had been chasing all along but weren’t yet prepared to fulfill.
In 2014, Grizfolk burst onto the scene with their debut EP, From the Spark, followed by 2016’s full-length Waking Up The Giants. Their catchy blend of electronic-tinged folk rock and pop styles caught the ears of fans around the globe. They returned in 2019 with Rarest Of Birds, delivering a nostalgic, summertime feel with their embracing more organic instrumentation in lieu of previous synth heavy sounds. This new era of Grizfolk may best be described as an eponymous genre encompassing both the band’s name as well as their sound, created during a time of extreme planetary tension and only succeeding because of the sense of camaraderie the four players were able to maintain despite the circumstances.
