Our man Nick Grandchamp wrote “Madness” after trying to go to the grocery store one day a few months ago. he was standing in line just taking in how crazy everyone and everything was around him. Covid put a blanket of fear and depression over an already sick cold world and this song is his reaction to that.
“The music video was done by Justin from Rainbow Gorilla and I can’t say enough good things about working with him on this together.” – comments Nick. “It was a group effort, I had some ideas and he had some ideas and I think the final outcome captures the feeling of the song perfectly. If anyone wants a cool music video I would definitely hit him up.”
2022 was a great year for music, and to wrap it up with Nick, we asked him to give us some of the bands and releases that got him stoked. Here are his picks.
