The Grand East – What A Man

The Grand East – What A Man
Self released / BB Records – 2018
Rock, Blues, Soul, Classic, Psych
Rated: ****

Are you looking for something soulful? Something with an irresistible groove? Check out the new effort What A Man by Dutch five-piece The Grand East. These cats show their love for their influences and there are influences a plenty. Think The Doors, The Who, Velvet Underground and even something classic like the Allman Brothers. But none of them become more than influences cause it’s The Grand East we hear here. A feel for the days of yore and everything retro; but with so many modern touches that it never becomes anything but a majestic rock record that quickly warms your heart. Producers Pablo van de Poel (from DeWolff) and Simon Akkermans (from Bombay, Jungle By Night) have delivered an intense crispy and energetic sound that works extremely well on the song with a more garage approach, the psychedelic ones and all that soulful gold that is spread out across the album! What A Man, what a record!
