THE GROGANS Reveal Gnarly B-Side Single ‘Be Your Man’ 

Adaptive and reactive Melbourne outfit The Grogans return with their first music of the year on their explosive new offering Be Your Man. The flip side to its sister release on transparent red vinyl, Just A Kid, which dropped at the tail end of last year, Be Your Man continues the trio’s legacy of lucrative, finger-on-the-pulse songwriting that reflects and responds to the ever-changing world around them. In 2022, that world calls for some classic call and response punk rock, evident in multitudes on Be Your Man.  

Out now via Cousin Will Records, the single sees the lads; Quin Grunden (Vocals, Guitar, Bass), Angus Vasic (Guitar, BV) and Jordan Lewis (Drums, BV), at their most urgent and visceral. Grunden’s heady vocals speak of desperately clinging to a lover that’s slipping through his grasp, while Vasic and Lewis’ combined frenetic energy dare the frontman to lose focus. The result is an electrifying malaise of sound, and one that is destined to erupt on the live stage.

“We wanted to write something heavier as we really enjoy that side of our live show. We wanted it to be in your face but still within our nature. It’s a song about wanting to prove yourself to a partner and wanting to step up to the table but it’s still in a simple manner a classic love track all wrapped up in a punkish wrapping. Dig ya teeth in and take what you will from it.” – Gus Vasic, The Grogans

The Grogans are a truly unmissable live act, deploying an extensive variety of stylistic influences with cohesion and conviction on stage. Angus and Quin’s combined surf jangle and punctuated guitar riffage are propelled by drummer Jordan Lewis’ well oiled machine, while Quin’s viscous vocals range from reverb drenched upstart chants to honeyed croons. Having supported the likes of Ocean Alley, Maddy Jane, Northeast Party House, Nai Palm, Drunk Mums, The Chats and Polish Club, The Grogans will soon take their captivating live show on the road again supporting Hockey Dad on their 2022 Regional Tour, with single launch shows penned for Torquay (new show), Sydney (sold out) and Wollongong (selling fast).
