Toronto-based indie rock artist Grizzly Coast just released her first EP, ‘Party of One.’
This EP drops at a significant time, with featuring songs that reflect on loneliness.
Formerly performing as an acoustic singer-songwriter, the Toronto-based indie rock project fronted by Alannah Kavanaugh wears her expansion into full-band territory well.
“I wrote [this EP] in 2018, when I felt like an island,” Kavanaugh explains. “I lived alone, I wasn’t very social, and my mental health was tossing me about, so I wrote a lot of songs, and without planning, I realized they all investigated solitude from different perspectives.”
She never imagined that ‘Party of One’ would drop during a time where others felt the same way on a mass scale.
“People need other people, and I hope these songs bring anyone who feels like I did a moment of comfort in an otherwise challenging period of disconnection,” she adds.
Late last summer, Kavanaugh and her partner bought a Volvo, named it Ducky, and headed west. On their month-long trip, the couple spent time in Badlands National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Oregon, Washington, The Cowichan Valley, Tofino, Vancouver, Banff + more.
Her new, self-made music video for ‘Lonely Planet’ features footage from the journey.
From the imaginative, yet highly-analytical mind of Alannah Kavanagh comes Grizzly Coast, the Toronto-based indie rock project with heavy-hitting instrumentation that tears up the stage and heavy-lifting lyrical narratives that compel you to think deeper.
Grizzly Coast wears her expansion into full-band territory well, having toured her powerful and effervescent live shows throughout Ontario and Alberta, including opening slots for Fast Romantics, Begonia, and Exclaim! magazine’s Class of 2020.
Grizzly Coast blends her trademark thoughtful lyricism with dreamy guitar rock sensibilities.
