North-Wales trio, GRAVVES have today released the lead single ‘Power Bomb Baby’ from their upcoming EP, Oh, The Joy.
Following its premiere with Upset Magazine, bassist Adam Hughes said “The track is about when you meet somebody and they blow you away. I guess, kind of like a powerbomb. We’ve been sat on this tune for a few years now, so it’s great to finally have it out. We did the video ourselves – We like to do lo-fi videos and have a laugh whilst making them. We put up a green screen and just DIY’d it!”
Matching witty, tongue-in-cheek lyrics to jagged guitars, GRAVVES are noise merchants bar none.
They occupy a space where punk fury, alt-rock hugeness and truly infectious songs coexist. Blasts of vicious feedback live alongside a swagger ladened with naggingly catchy hooks.
This Spring will see the emerging trio from North Wales release their new EP Oh, The Joy through Loner Noise Records on the 27th April. The EP is loud, infectious and downright cataclysmic – The 6 songs of Oh, The Joy showcases a band taking aim at bigger things.
“We’re super excited for people to finally hear the new songs we’ve been working on.” said vocalist Adam Hughes. “The EP took us a bit longer than it should of to finish, but we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We are now just looking ahead to losing our voices and breaking our bodies on the road.”
In support, GRAVVES will take to the road, including appearances at Wrong Festival, Sound City and Focus Wales.

Singles ‘Tribes’ and ‘My Pet Rihanna’ received widespread airplay by the likes of BBC Radio 6, BBC Radio Wales, Amazing Radio and Kerrang! Radio. The release also received numerous gleaming reviews online, being described as “a bratty, scuzzy brand of balls-out grunge rock, bursting with snarling punk attitude.”
