Get ready for the message we all need to hear: to be the light in a cold world. That’s all we can do; together we can make it bright. Last year’s ascending indie-rock outfit is this year’s headliner, and it couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of fellas.

After a few years spent on the road, and a new contract with powerhouse Nettwerk Records, Grizfolk have honed their feel-good sense of melodic folk-pop into a sharp and bouncy invective for the pouters among us. We can all rejoice, if but for a brief moment, in the groovy sound of what is possible when we all have access to our better selves.

Heavy Crown, new from Grizfolk, will be the latest bass-jam to take you away to that special place.

“Where do we go when the road runs out
Love will rise up indeed
Done whispering and thinking loud
Done blowing with the breeze”— Grizfolk

Grizfolk split their time between Nashville, Los Angeles, and Stockholm. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
