GRENADE JUMPER RELEASE TWO-TRACK
WHAT’S LEFT WHEN IT ALL FALLS DOWN
LED BY NEW SINGLE ‘BREATHE IN’
Sydney alt-rockers Grenade Jumper today release the blistering two-track What’s Left When It All Falls Down, led by the empowering second single ‘Breathe In’ which follows last month’s A-Side release ‘The Power You Flaunted’.
Borne out of anger and angst, ‘Breathe In’ is about the reverberating impacts of gendered beauty standards placed on women by corporations who take advantage of their resulting insecurities. Pairing visceral lyricism that highlights harm and trauma with soaring vocals and explosive bursts of energy, the track is a rally cry that empowers women to take their power back.
Frontwoman Bianca Davino shared on the track, “’Breathe In’ is about coming to terms with themes of traditional beauty standards and self-worth. It paints the picture of someone who’s at a crossroads – finding the balance between empowerment and being preyed on for your vulnerabilities.
The title of our two track, ‘What’s Left When It All Falls Down’ comes from this song. I knew we had to call it that because it’s a huge reflection of what we’re experiencing globally right now – a shift in psyche, and we’re waiting hopefully and anxiously for the product of what rises from this change. We think the two songs together culminate as a dual narrative together in this way, which is why we packaged them together.“
Showcasing Grenade Jumper’s wide range of influences, What’s Left When It All Falls Down sees the band pushing their boundaries to be the best songwriters they can be. Employing a driving, dark rock style the songs make a loud statement and carve out critical messages pertaining to young people – such as the hurt and distrust on ‘The Power You Flaunted‘ which takes aim at the political and arts leaders who have let the younger generations down. The four-piece contrast thrashing drums with dreamy melodies, always rooted in raw, punk attitude to create feelings of intimidation, intimacy, vulnerability and strength.’
What’s Left When It All Falls Down
Since their formation in 2018, Sydney’s Grenade Jumper – Bianca Davino (vocals), Dean Fernance (drums), Lukas Sikes-Georgiannis (bass) and Max Jacobson (guitars) have drawn on inspiration from alt-rock greats Deftones, Smashing Pumpkins and The Strokes to deliver huge riffs and catchy hooks, powered by an unwavering passion for the genre. With a string of anthemic releases behind them, including their debut ‘Get Ahead’ and 2019’s widely-praised ‘Gazed’, the band were awarded Trendsetter status by triple j, and have shared the stage with scene heavyweights Deaf Havana (UK), Between You and Me, Hellions and more.
