The Zane Lowe Show, Greta Van Fleet bassist Sam Kiszka, and singer Josh Kiszka discussed the band’s upcoming sophomore album “The Battle at Garden’s Gate”, as well as the fact that they are finally making music that doesn’t really sound like Led Zeppelin.
“One word that would not describe this album appropriately would be ‘ambient.’ I think what we did and what we generally try to do is create really dynamic album. And that’s I think what we achieved here.
“It really is like a puzzle and each song is a piece, and everything is necessary in that equation. And it was like the themes even tie through and connect between one song to the next.
“It really does exist in the same world and connects to the same world of the previous album. But I think it’s evolved form of Greta Van Fleet that’s here and now. And I think it’s how artists seem to try to do.”
“You don’t want to be stagnant, oh never. And I think we’re at that point actually where we can finally say, yeah, Led Zeppelin’s obviously a big influence for us because we are not making music that sounds really anything remotely like that.
“What ‘The Battle at Garden’s Gate’ is is the coming of age of the sound of Greta Van Fleet and how Greta Van Fleet relates to the 21st century.”
