BIOGRAPHY

Grim Streaker plays the kind of loud, fast, abrasive punk that emerged in L.A. and D.C. in the early-80s, mixed with a dose of the snotty, mid-tempo punk of late-70s New York and London. The band’s sound lies somewhere between that of the Adolescents, the Dead Boys, X-Ray Spex and Fugazi, with layers of guitar noise reminiscent of current bands like A Place to Bury Strangers, White Lung and METZ.


Singer Amelia Bushell, guitarists Dan Peskin and Micah Weisberg, bassist Bill Dvorak and drummer Piyal Basu formed the band in late 2016. Since then, the group has been making a name for itself in the venues and DIY spaces of Brooklyn, with live shows quickly becoming known for the wild stage antics of Bushell.

Grim Streaker released its first single, “Guts” in January, produced by Mike Kutchman (Parquet Courts, WALL, Sharon Van Etten). Stereogum calls the track “one of those introductions that arrives fully formed while still promising even more to come.”

Press Clippings

“A Brooklyn band making razor-sharp modern punk that harkens back to the icons of the genre.”
– THE FADER

“Calling to mind the likes of Bleach-era Nirvana and the lo-fi shrieks of early Yeah Yeah Yeahs, all while retaining the Amelia Bushell-fronted band’s singular scuzz and kinetic spirit.”
– The Line of Best Fit

““Freak Child”, will give you the perfect shot of adrenaline to get you through the day…2 minutes of pure power.”
– Culture Collide

“Bushell’s voice sounds nothing like a beach day in Miami, either. She’s more like Exene and the White Stripes’ unholy love child than anything else.”
– Tidal

“This Brooklyn-based five-piece kicks more than its fair share of ass, and the proof is in the pudding. In this case, the pudding is ‘Psycho,’ a ferocious new single from their upcoming Girl Minority EP.”
– The 405

“The five-piece has staged a remarkable ascent since their formation late last year, amassing a reputation as one of the hardest-working bands in Brooklyn’s DIY circuit. Anyone who witnesses their caterwauling live show stands a good chance of leaving the venue dripping with sweat, baptized in the chalice of chaos.”
– CLRVYNT

“The music video is pure bliss for those of us who prefer live music, as they are clearly a band that thrives on stage. “Guts” is sweaty and beautiful… and just might encourage you to check them out live.”
– Impose
