small graves formed from the pandemic ashes of Philadelphia band goodnight/goodluck. The band takes a similarly impassioned approach, albeit with a more personal and inward-facing lens.
small graves (Alex Brown, Ed Taylor, Eric Zrinsky, and Jayson Verdibello) creates a frenzied mix of Iron Chic and Japandroids anthemic punk rock with a healthy dose of indie rock sincerity from bands like Tokyo Police Club and Death Cab for Cutie. Add to that the raw, gritty sound of 90s alt-rock bands like The Toadies and Silverchair, and you get a sound that feels nostalgic and familiar, while tilling new sonic grounds.
The band recorded "irregular," their debut EP, with producer Kyle Pulley at the Headroom in Philadelphia in late 2022. Their lead single, "Jayson Sadman's Joyless Travel Agency," and accompanying music video is slated for release on April 4, 2023 on all major streaming platforms ahead of the full album's summer 2023 release.
