Grassy Spark have paid final tribute to their debut album Portal with the third and final Parkwood live session video for their latest single ‘Pyromaniac’.
Released in August 2016, Portal has found its way through South Africa with singles like ‘Living In a Paradise (feat Jeremy Loops)’, ‘Here I am’, ‘Feel It’ and ‘Love to Share’ topping national and campus radio charts. Written and self-recorded in a tiny room in Kalk Bay, the intention behind the debut album was to open a portal to the world of Grassy Spark. Months were spent at the seaside crafting a piece of work that would lay out a path of infinite opportunity.
“It’s been a wild ride. We are so humbled by the response and growth of our family. Seeing fans posting videos of themselves jolling to tunes and singing the lyrics at full volume at shows has made us feel like it’s all worth it. It’s this energetic response that has propelled us forward,” comments frontman, Yanick.
He continues, saying “Pyromaniac is one of our favourites off the album. It’s supposed to feel like a rollercoaster ride through the feelings of obsession. We play this song near the end of the set when the fire is at its most lit. It’s a blast from the rock ‘n roll past and has no chill. It’s a great way to burn your way through the Portal.”
Grassy Spark are proud of their debut album, but are excited to release new music in 2018 and fans are in for a treat. Yanick explains, saying “It’s been about 3 years since the writing of Portal began, so we’ve had plenty of time to write a new chapter to the story. We created a portal into a world of the ‘bright, beautiful, timeless and unexpected’ and it’s this world that we will be exploring with you going forward.”
Prepare for the unleashing of a new sound in 2018. The guys have been writing and the Dropbox folder named “new tracks” is filling up quickly. Like anything in the universe, GS is an organism and is constantly growing and changing. Keep your mind open and be ready for anything.
