Psychedelic art rock. The Grasping Straws have been consistently performing in and around New York City since 2012.
In July 2014, the group went on their first national tour with fellow NYC-based artist Cannonball Statman. The band's founder, Mallory, has since gone on to tour Europe, Canada and more of the US with different iterations of The Grasping Straws to support the June 2015 release of the band's debut album. The Grasping Straws continue to tour and perform locally around NYC, while working on writing and recording new material.
"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)
