EDITORS’ NOTES

Michigan four-piece Greta Van Fleet are stirring up the sort of electrifying, hard-edged rock music that makes you want to rev your engine. On their breakout hit, “Highway Tune,” singer Josh Kiszka lays his high-pitched howl over ripping electric guitar and hammering drums with such slick polish, Led Zeppelin would be proud. “No stopping on the highway girl/Because I want to burn my gas,” he sings. It’s urgent, retro, and impressively precise—a must-listen for fans of '70s classic rock and young guns keen to claim the genre for their generation. Don’t miss “Safari Song.”

About Greta Van Fleet

Greta Van Fleet are a quartet of good-looking millennial guys who are out of step with their era: they're unapologetic throwbacks to the golden era of classic rock -- specifically, the golden era of Led Zeppelin. Raised on rock in the Michigan city of Frankenmuth, the brothers Kiska (twins Josh on vocals and Jake on guitar, plus younger Sam on bass) formed the band in 2012. Early in 2014, they recorded a live EP, and soon their original "Standing On" appeared in a Detroit ad for the Chevy Equinox. Soon, Greta Van Fleet were signed to Lava Records and the label pushed "Highway Tune" in early 2017, landing it on the Showtime series Shameless and using it as the anchor for their debut EP, Black Smoke Rising. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
