Grand Vapids - "Pale Hooves" (audio) (Premiere)

by Brice Ezell

28 October 2014

"Pale Hooves", a brooding, dark number by the Athens, GA group Grand Vapids, is a track off of the band's forthcoming LP, Guarantees.

The Athens, GA-based Grand Vapids have one hell of an ominous teaser for their forthcoming studio album, Guarantees. The song, titled “Pale Hooves”, is built around a brooding riff that’s equal parts ‘90s indie and outlaw country. Cryptic lyrics like “Looks like death has finally given birth” add to the the tense mood of the music. On its own, it creates an intriguing mood; however, what the tune truly does is make one wonder about what’s to come from this young band.

Grand Vapids is releasing Guarantees on January 20th.
