It’s no secret that we have immense love for one of our hometown heroes, GRiZ. The Denver based artists has been a cornerstone of the local music scene for years now (ever since he moved to Colorado really), and today he gives us another reason to celebrate his talent. Rainbow Brain, GRiZ’s seventh studio album with a whopping 23 tracks, has landed.
Rainbow Brain marks a departure from GRiZ’s last full length project, Ride Waves, but it also serves as a response to taking a whole year off of performing. Almost all of these tracks are dubstep leaning heaters that are designed to be LOUD. Big build ups, powerful low end sound design, and glitchy, head-spinning left turns dominate this project, and we’re here for all of it.
While most of the music on Rainbow Brain hits hard, GRiZ also takes time to deliver more groovy tracks such as “Gold” with Cherub (following up GFY from 2016) and the sax-laden throwback “Infinite.” Even these more most soulful numbers on the tracklist, however, like “Feel It All,” have some nice bassy moments.
After a full listen to this new album, it’s safe to say that the performances he has lined up are going to be ones for the books. For us Coloradans, we have a very special Red Rocks performance to look forward to, as well as his three-night run at the 1STBANK Center.
