Grim Streaker‘s sound is a mix of the snotty, mid-tempo punk of late ’70s New York and London and the fast, abrasive hardcore that emerged in LA and DC in the early ’80s, topped off with a hint of angular, moody post-punk. Singer Amelia Bushell, guitarists Dan Peskin and Micah Weisberg, bassist Bill Dvorak, and drummer Piyal Basu formed the band in late 2016. Since then, the group has been making a name for itself in the venues and DIY spaces of Brooklyn, with live shows quickly becoming known for Bushell’s wild stage antics.
January 2017 saw the release of Grim Streaker’s first single, “Guts,” produced by Mike Kutchman (Parquet Courts, Sharon Van Etten). They followed it with the release of their debut EP, Girl Minority, in July 2017. An upcoming debut LP, also produced by Kutchman, is nearing completion.
