They’re On Fire
For the past few weeks, rock outfit Greta Van Fleet has been making headlines not just with the release of their latest album “The Battle at Garden’s Gate” but because of the live performances they shared on their YouTube channel. For purists, it’s fairly easy to dismiss them as copycats of the biggest rock bands in the ’70s but putting aside any preconceived notion about them and instead diving into their music, they’re not half as bad as critics and haters make them out to be.
And in all honesty, they surprised us with their new record. There are definitely traces of their musical influences but the songs are undoubtedly good. Plus, Greta Van Fleet proves they’re a stellar live act by streaming performances that will blow anyone away.
“Some people are writing their articles in their mother’s basement and they’re pissed off that we’re doing something,” lead singer Josh Kiszka told The Guardian. “If your career is writing negative things about people, I would think you’d have something better to do.”
He’s not wrong though. They’ve been getting hate since day one even though their music is a breath of fresh air at a time when crappy songs are dominating MTV and other platforms.
