Pitchfork reviews “Prom”

Pitchfork reviews Grooms’ Prom today.

Pitchfork on Prom:

“…For the follow-up, Prom, Grooms dive headlong into the sweeping erotic confusion that permeated the dreamier sphere of 90s alt-rock….Grooms’ aims give off a whiff of vague danger, a static unease occasionally broken by detuned guitars and skins-smashing breakdowns.”

and

“When Grooms hit the sticky, slack-jawed realities of album highlights “Expression of” and “Skating With Girl”, they rank among the few guitar-indie bands so unafraid to match intimacy with clarity.”
