NEW MUSIC: GRiZ Releases “Hard Times” video

If you peeped the recent DubEra interview with GRiZ he talked a about making this video earlier in the year during his stop at Detroit’s Movement Festival.  The soulful, bass heavy track strikes an emotional chord set against deserted warehouses of a once thriving city, with the fans going all out in the rain as Mr. Kwiecinski dons his own personalized Red Wings jersey. The change in the song half way through had me immediately turn the volume up with that classic GRiZ sound we’ve grown to love over the past couple years, a good indication of what we can expect when the album drops soon!

Word from the man:

I wrote this record over the past year in many different states and phases. From tour busses, to bedroom studios, from green rooms full of friends and scenesters, to planes thousands of feet flying through the sky. I’ve met and worked with so many new people through the creation of this album and pushed my limits as a producer to create something challenging and dynamic. Taking every single moment that I wasn’t on stage and dedicating it to developing ideas of sound; at times, left me breathless and laid out on the floor of my room with songs on repeat – anxious thoughts melting away into space.

But thats the thing. I’ve found that music sets me free. Its up to us to use that which is most compelling and manifest a new reality. One free of apathy. A world of compassion, empathy and cooperation. A world of action and of love. 

This is Rebel Era.

– GRiZ.
