avatar for Grooms


Grooms are an avant-pop band Brooklyn, praised for mixing beautiful, instantly catchy riffs and melodies with darkly experimental textures. Prom, Grooms' follow up to 2009's widely-praised Rejoicer, will be available on Kanine Records (Grizzly Bear, Surfer Blood) in May. It finds the band maturing in every way. The melodies are more refined, delicate, and accessible, while the soundscapes sound stranger than ever, minus much of the abrasion of the previous effort. The record covers everything from strangely manipulated electronics to doo-wop to 70s Fleetwood Mac (turned on its head). Prom is the rare kind of ambitious record that finds the band both more creative and more accessible (and prettier) than ever.
