about

"Creativi, imprevedibili, selvaggi, sempre diversificati nelle ispirazioni, i GRAM. aprono il loro debutto con un dolce arpeggiato alla Motorpsycho, influenzato dai climi West Coast, e arrivano al tremendo nirvanismo, oscuro, folle, contorno di 'Nails'. [...] L'inquietudine psichedelica profonda che scava dentro un mix di Motorpsyco/Verdena/Dinosaur Jr di 'Thirsty Animals' o i riff angolari, tra Sonic Youth e Television, di 'Junk DNA'. E infine il deliquio acido di 'Home Fruit' che tritura noise, paranoia e slackness".

- Claudio Sorge su "Rumore"


"Artefici di un grunge sporco che si è visto raramente su questi lidi, i GRAM. saltano alla ribalta con un disco che suona veramente di fresco. Se poi aggiungete quell'attitudine DIY che andava tanto negli Stati Uniti prima che lo stesso grunge si fosse definito, abbiamo un lavoro che ci riporta indietro di un quarto di secolo senza farci sentire vecchi".

- Renato Massaccesi su "Classic Rock Italia


"Un disco che sa consapevolmente di periferia drogata, anche nei brani dal sapore bucolico, come se l'omogeneità del lavoro vada cercata più sul piano emotivo/artistico che su quello compositivo. I Gram. in questo esordio riescono ad essere potenti, inquieti ed ironici come raramente accade nell'ambiente alternativo italiano che tende troppo spesso a prendersi stucchevolmente sul serio."

- di ChiaraStampa su "DeBaser"


"Il quartetto è stato abile ad architettare un immaginario musicale dalle atmosfere stimolanti che tiene lontana la noia grazie alla componente di imprevedibilità che aleggia in tutto il disco"

- di Daniele Ruggiero su "ArtistsAndBands"


"“How can i Say?” nasce dalle “tenebrose profondità” della scena musicale romana underground ed è un qualcosa di inquieto e ironico, un sapore internazionale e che dimostra, strabordando da ogni solco di questo cd, la personalità vertiginosa dei GRAM."

- di Simona Luchini su "Dafenproject"


"L’imprevedibilità è la principale carta in mano a questa band romana, capace di stupire, ma anche di rapire sulla lunga distanza grazie a un ottimo senso melodico e brillanti capacità di scrittura."

- di Alberto Sgarlato su "Distorsioni"


"'How Can I Say?' è un album dalle tante sfaccettature, nel quale si respira il rock nelle sue forme migliori. I Gram riescono a comporre pezzi raffinati con grande naturalezza e professionalità e l’addizione di tutte queste cose rendono obbligatorio l’ascolto dell’opera."

- di Matteo Bozza su "Grind on the Road"

I will show you teeth, so you won't think I'm sad or depressed | the less that i can tell, the more that I can show you then | I was up to ask your name but apparently I was beat by shame | so I left and took a beer 'cause I couldn't live without, that's clear | Speaking in tongue | Speaking alone with myself | Better sayin' shit | inside my head | than trying to explain | what I can't | WHAT I CAN'T! | WITH MYSELF!
Track Name: Crazy Vegan
I ate somebody yesterday | it ain't like wheat meat | I chewed my buddy, furry and grey | Say the smell of cunts | stay for this tea pot | sail on winter's top | wet nuns on the floor | Hey, not so bad, not so bad | Ain't got no more clay | giving shape to demons | ain't got no more clay | giving shape to dGeemons | I'm gonna pretend to be friend of little | monkeys and men | just to kill and eat 'em
Track Name: Thirsty Animals
Oh my god we're thirsty animals | I don't feel quite, honestly,

Track Name: Ashtray
Behind the corner of a church | behind your daughter who said so | I got no more so much food | bringing flowers to our mood | Fill the ashtray | fill that ashtray | burn it all | fill it till fail | What you say? | What you say? | 'cause I know about things | that don't rehab
Track Name: Junk DNA
I don't need that junk DNA to feel what you feel | I don't see how a thousand of coloured pills can heal and set free | But hey why, shouldn't I try, I'm not that type that refuse to get confused | I'm not that type and I don't wanna feel isolated! So I just swallow those pills down and see what will follow! I'm here at the top of my frenzy I can't stop questioning to me every day must see his peak and as well touch the ground | So as for now I bet you're down you're not the kind that react face the fact that it's not time that will pick you up if you're steady. Say you do, you do not want to be like your friends, they're so pathetic, yeah, they're so pathetic. YEAH THEY'RE SO PATHETIC!
Track Name: Teamwork Deficit
Teamwork deficit | esitate on yourself - as they tell | We will never have to pay - quit this land, stand your death | Hell | Livin'it up to shiver, livin it up to shiver oh.. | You're my bad, so myself | Livin'it up to shiver | livin'it up to shiver | You're my bad, so myself | here I am! - here I am! - here I am! | Teamwork deficit | concentrate on yourself - be your man | we will never have to pay as they say, make their day
Track Name: Nails
You should never be so kind | you'll be dipped into a frown | demonstrating how to fly | today's the day to shut it down | BOOM! | Earth | Mission | Fission | Aim | Laugh | Extinction | An explosion here will shine
people | dying all around | I was quite wishing to survive | today's the day to shut it down | BOOM! | Earth | Mission | Fission | Aim | Laugh | Extinction | Growl | Scream | Jingle | Aim | Laugh | Extinction | You should listen | listen to grow
Track Name: Home Fruit (Space Ambulance Take 5 in the Castle)
Heal me my friend | You should know how I can forget myself, a competitive, sadistic man. Never loose even when concentrate, paranoia -
me - feelingless | Heal me my friend | You should know how I can forgive myself, all sort of mistakes taken on the edge. Above my shoulders, among my legs, paranoia, can't let me rest
