Rock is dead. Long live rock. Greta Van Fleet is a (very) young band with an old sound, resurrecting the thunder-and-lightning aesthetic of Led Zeppelin for a modern audience. In fact, they sound so much like the legendary foursome (especially lead singer Robert Plant) that it’s almost scary. While they’ve only released a four-song album thus far, I am eager to see how this group of recent high school grads will evolve in the years to come.
Listen to their debut EP, Black Smoke Rising, on Spotify.
Shout-out to my friend Dan for tipping me off to these guys.
