GRiZ is an absolute force on behemoth seventh studio album, ‘Rainbow Brain’ [STREAM]
Future funk pioneer GRiZ has been unloading announcements on his close-knit fan community all year long, signaling to the world that he was coming out sprinting into 2021 with the return of live music. The Detroit native also had been releasing new music at will since early February. However, it wasn’t until July 13 that GRiZ announced that these seemingly random, one-off releases would make up his seventh studio album, Rainbow Brain.
Following a top-notch kickoff event on July 22, the full-length has now fully manifested in a whopping 23-track LP, with inclusions from longtime collaborators ProbCause and Big Gigantic, fellow Colorado local Jantsen, indie-electronic duo Cherub, and more. With four already-released singles from the LP, including “Vibe Check,” “Astro Funk,” “TieDye Sky,” and title track “Rainbow Brain,” GRiZ describes Rainbow Brain as “something close to his heart,”
“I want to live my life in the space of creative expression, and I want you to enjoy it… this is something close to my heart that gives my life purpose. I hope that you love it.”– GRiZ
The album itself is presented in the form of a continuous mix, meant to be played from front to back in an effort to fully capture the experience as it should be enjoyed. Rainbow Brain stands as a point of departure from GRiZ’s most recent Ride Waves LP, but it radiates all of the same positive energy and feel-good vibes synonymous with his brand of uplifting electronic music. From powerful saxophone melodies to astronomical bass synths, the album in its entirety is a transcendent journey through GRiZ’s colorful soundscapes of space and time.
