“The Grift is one of those bands that throws everything at you: solid songwriting, radio-ready tunes with big, happy hooks, strong melodies and Beatlesque harmonies and, when the occasion calls for it, pfat jams. You’re humming their tunes before you even know them.”J.C. Lockwood, North Shore Sunday, Danvers, MA
