Grenadeers – Chasing The Stereotype

Grenadeers – Chasing The Stereotype
Self released – 2016
Rock, Desert, Stoner, Pop
Rated: ****

A guest spot for Alain Johannes on the fourth track The Herd and the entire EP Chasing The Stereotype is mixed by the good man as well. Okay, you’ve got my attention! We are talking about a new six-piece outfit from The Netherlands called Grenadeers. And on their first six songs strong EP Chasing The Stereotype we get a hefty dose of stonerpop and robotic desert rock in the vein of Queens Of The Stone Age and the European bands that popped up after they all heard the magic that comes from the Palm Desert and the Rancho De La Luna studio. It also moves decidedly towards one of the other bands Alain Johannes was or is part of, Arthur Channel. Especially in the way they explore big vistas and grand gestures, which is definitely the big plus of the six tracks on this EP. And for those explorations they use no less than three guitarist. Which makes them sound big in almost every way. And after having the EP on repeat for a day or two we can only state that even though Grenadeers might not be as raw or gritty as you would love them to be. It is every bit as robotic and danceable. Which makes it just as easy to fall in love with!
