Grocer is a band from Philadelphia. Lead by three distinct vocalists, they pendulate between moments of brash atonality, saccharine pop sensibility, and rhythmic acrobatics. Their compositions are both meticulous and volatile, while their live performances are lauded for explosive chemistry with cheeky curiosity. On their most recent full length Number’s Game the band rearranged the puzzle pieces of 90s-influenced rock and dissonant pop into something utterly their own. Now building on a landscape of polyrhythms and chromaticism that their fans have grown to cherish, they explore new sonic structures in their forthcoming EP Scatter Plot. Across its six tracks, Grocer reiterates they are just as comfortable with glassy earworms as they are with angular dissonance. They remain giddy, furious and singularly themselves. A notably ambitious touring outfit, the self-described “road dogs” will be touring the US in March 2023 with a return to Treefort Music Festival in the middle of another lap of the nation. Grocer amuses and perplexes live audiences all over the country and do the same around the globe on their Audiotree and NPR sessions. They are playful entertainers at heart, but not to the detriment of the genuinely substantive work that they create.
