Here it is! Yet a new song and video but this time with a bit of a heavier subject. ’Until Snowbreak’ is inspired by the documentary ‘Winter on Fire’, which is about the unrest in the Ukraine in 2013, when millions of people united to support European integration. The hopelessness and terror people felt, but also the feeling of power they experienced when united, were to inspire ‘Until Snowbreak’.
For the video the band decided to work together with visual artist Domas van Wijk. Domas is well on his way to become a constant force in the dutch art community, with exhibitions all over the country. For this video Domas made an installation with plasma globes and striplights. He discovered something amazing: even though the striplights are not connected, the electric glow of the plasma globe makes them light up! Then Domas took this even further by triggering the plasma globe with sound taken from the song! Amazing, right?!

Here is our first single of 2019! ‘Trip Switch’ is part of a monthly streak, in which we release a new song every four weeks! This heavy alternative, yet quite a danceable song, is about the struggles of being an introvert in an extraverted world. In the video accompanying ‘Trip Switch’ we see Guy Pek, Grenadeers’ drummer and songwriter, staring into the camera while being distracted in many ways, including but not limited to throwing food at him and covering him in soft drinks. Shot in one take, this video represents the often ridiculous distractions of the outer world and the way this introverted individual decides to deal with them: by doing nothing and trying not to laugh.
