Sydney, Australia-based indie rock outfit The Griswolds are releasing Acoustic EP—which features five acoustic takes of tracks from their 2014 debut album, Be Impressive (including “If You Wanna Stay,” their latest single that’s currently climbing the Alternative Charts) as well as downtempo covers of tourmate Walk The Moon’s “Anna Sun” and Cherub’s “Doses and Mimosas”—releases April 13 via Wind Up Records. EW is streaming the collection exclusively today.
Known for dance-ready, synth-pop tracks, getting The Griswolds replacing the propulsive with stripped down recordings is a peek at the other side of the group. The Griswolds will kick off their headlining tour June 16 in Boston—a full list of dates is below.
