Greta Van Fleet grow creepy moustaches

2021-02-19 by SitarHero CONTRIBUTOR | 72 Comments
Led Zeppelin cosplayers, Greta Van Fleet, have established their newly found physical and musical maturity by growing wispy facial hair and releasing a new single titled "Heat Above". The song is the first single off their upcoming sophomore LP, The Battle at Garden's Gate, about which the band has said:

"[W]e can finally say, yeah, Led Zeppelin's obviously a big influence for us because we are not making music that sounds really anything remotely like that."

The Battle at Garden's Gate is set to ascend on April 16th.

Nothing borderline about it. Dude's voice rubs me the wrong way, especially that falsetto. The music is pleasant though and the melody decent.

In all honesty, I really like these guys. I wouldn't even consider them a guilty pleasure at this point; I just dig them.

Guitar riffs are pretty cool at some points, but it's still more unoriginal trash as expected from these guys.

Also I would rather listen to Wes Scantlin than this fucking singer. What a god awful grating noise produced by that dude.

Idk these guys just have a vibe coming off of em that I've never been able to get past, like I get the sense that they consider "preserving rock and roll" to be a much more noble pursuit than it really is and that kind of attitude pervades their music even when they aren't doing anything that annoys me on a sonic level

I agree with Kompys, Ttese guys might actually be more tolerable if them (and their fans) didn't act like they were doing some sort of noble service to society by "saving rock and roll"

Yeah, it'd be one thing if these guys did something fresh with this era of sound, but they'll probably just rip off one band after another and call it innovation. The tune didn't suck though. Vocals were kinda fucking ridiculous though. lol

Yes they definitely have a Zepp sound and look, but can you deny that?? They are actually a very fucking cool band for this day and age! Their songs are extremely well put together, written and absolutely rock!! I see elements of the Who and hear Floydish riffs at times, even some Rush inspiration I reckon. These lads are carrying the torch of the best decade in Rock history very fucking high, and i for one stand and applaud such young hearts keeping the flame burning. The attention to detail is very well done! Steel Panther give us the 80s for what it was, Greta give us back the 70s. Rock on kids!!! you Rock!! Thank you.

I listened to like half a song from the debut - well, that's been like Led Zepp lite, like people said all the time.
The new song is a lot like Queen.
I mean, they must be competent to some extend to create something like this, but this way they'll always be in the shadow of these legendary bands. No.t really interesting to me.

Also song needs more cowbell and kazoo

yt comment section highlights:

"GVF is giving us so much. True artists. I was a teenager in the 70’s and, believe me, the comparisons must stop. They have evolved what influenced them into their very own profound sound and vision. Jesus they are great.

"There’s something so celestial and magical about this."

"I don't know why, but this song makes me feel like anything is possible."

"That felt like a religious experience."

"I can't explain what this just did for my soul."

"Not in a very long time has a song brought tears of joy to my eyes. Thank you so much guys! Stay safe everyone in these troubled times."

"I’m gonna buy two vinyl albums of this new album. One to listen to and the other to keep in mint condition so when this band is very popular it will be worth some money"

"Listening to Greta is like falling in love with music all over again. You can hear the love and respect these guys share for music."
