Psychedelic art rock band The Grasping Straws has been consistently performing in and around New York City since 2012. The band’s founder, Mallory, has since gone on to tour Europe, Canada, and the US with an array of musicians and collaborators to support the release of the band’s debut album.
“Frontwoman Mallory Feuer blends an otherwordly, raw, bluesy edge with the fearlessness of pre-meltdown Courtney Love, both vocally and guitarwise, instantly putting this group on the map as one of New York’s most distinctive, individualistic, exciting new bands.” (New York Music Daily)
“The Grasping Straws drifted into slow, drum-marched songs that, particularly with frontwoman Mallory Feuer’s drawn-out and bluesy vocals, recalled the lo-fi glory of early Cat Power. Taking their time rather than rushing towards easy shock, these tracks intrigued with their very patience and calm and, perhaps most importantly, were ultimately moving, their tumbling quality enabling the audience to both engage and reflect.” (The Deli Magazine)
