Oakland art rock band Grex celebrates 10 years of making music, previewing music from its forthcoming album, Everything You Said Was Wrong.
Grex is an art rock band based out of Oakland, California. In biological terms, “grex” refers to the aggregation of a multitude of tiny, amoeba-like creatures combining to create a superorganism. Grex (the band) works the same way: two musicians who can function as one, the whole greater than the sum of its parts.
Grex has been called “essential current-and-future listening” (Tiny Mix Tapes), exploring the meeting point between psychedelic pop/rock and the dark outer reaches of noise and free jazz. The band recalls the explosive power of late John Coltrane, the dark energy of Suicide, and the whimsical weirdness of Skeleton Crew and Deerhoof.
