Album review by Jackie Hayden in Hotpress (Oct 6th 2010): ( 3.5/ 5)

The Grunts are a three piece Cork indie band. Their debut album released in 2010 as Jackie Hayden in Hot Press wrote 'evokes the raw earthy innocence of early REM, Echo and the Bunnymen et al. Of the eleven tracks, five are re-mastered from previously released EPs. 'Party Weirdo' is punk done medium rare, and there's punch and pungency in 'Crawl Right Back' and 'New York Smile'. 'Every strange Trip' has jangly echoes of The Byrds, a floating psychedelic subtlety pervades the very early. very -ish 'Cruelest Touch', especially Liam O'Shea's vocals, and the Echo-like 'Summer Must Break' coasts along with a modest swagger. Just the job, all told.

Since 2010 The Grunts have released 3 EPs including Into Submission, What goes on and recently NYC Woman on Inner Chapter records.

A new album is finally set for release on Inner Chapter records in March 2016.
