NYC Show Alert: The Grates playing Pianos tomorrow

The Grates Show

Australia’s The Grates will be playing Pianos Residency in Manhattan (Lower East Side) TOMORROW (7/14). You may not expect them to be my cup of tea, but then consider that the trio (two girls, one guy) meshes so many different sounds together – I feel like I’m listening to the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s and Cold War Kids combined. The harmonies never disappoint, and their rock sensibilities should make for one hell of a concert, much less a show in that intimate space of Pianos. Tickets here! (…Or just get one there.) Both tunes below are from Teeth Lost, Hearts Won.

The Grates – “Burn Bridges” [MP3]

The Grates – “Carve Your Name” [MP3]

    sigh – we were 2 aussies over for a holiday and just happened to see this advertised but couldn’t get tickets… they are supremely infectious, with both qwerky but unforgetable hooks and patience’s (lead vocals) habit of jumping means that it’s always very energetic….
