“She was like a womb turned inside out,” says the narrator of Anais Nin’s story “The Queen” in describing the story’s female protagonist. Her presence exuded the farthest reach of her internal feminine, a viscerally intimate display of the power inherent in a life both fierce and sensual. GRYGRDNS is the musical revelation of such externalized secrets and unified extremes. It is a place of permission to be both raw and unfiltered, a garden to cultivate the voice of the tender warrior at the heart of feminine experience.
Forming 2014, GRYGRDNS began as a collaboration between Miranda Scott (Evarusnik) and Eliza Lutz (Future Scars, As In We). Blending their highly unique and contrasting voices with an etheric soundscape shaped by the droning interplay of reverb-drenched guitar and synths, the group has created an undulating soundtrack to a waking dream. The duo were joined by Luke Carr of Storming The Beaches With Logos In Hand on drums, Rob Lundberg on upright bass and Cyrus Campbell on electric bass in the studio for the group's debut full-length entitled Interwoven, released on September 3rd. Featuring the same powerful line-up for their live performances, GRYGRDNS presents an experience both uniquely emotional and highly intense. The compositions wash over the listener like a wave of silk and thunder, taking root by way of lyrical poetry that drives their meaning ever forward.
