The LP Questionnaire - Grant Brinner of The Orwells

Written by Elizabeth Williams | Saturday, Mar 16, 2013


The Orwells are pretty adorbs. Let's face it. The quintet aren't even old enough to drink, yet they've already taken the garage punk world by storm and show no signs of slowing down.

These kiddos all grew up in the same town, have been playing music together for four years and currently live in Elmhurst, IL, which is 20 minutes outside of Chicago, if you didn't know. Their debut album Remember When is the perfectly fuzzy rock and roll soundtrack to any and every killer basement/garage/backyard party, so wild you'll be hoping no one's called the cops on you.

You can party with these dudes tonight at 1am at Latitude 30.

Bassist Grant Brinner took some time out from being so dang cute and rockin' to answer...
