Tysk Tysk Task is a Lowell-based indie grunge rock group featuring frontwoman Samantha Hartsel and drummer Danni Gannon. While often performing as a power-duo, their upcoming LP features Ellis Roundy on bass.
TTT has played all over New England and New York, with favorable reviews by the Boston Herald, Worcester Magazine, and Vanyaland to name a few.
This raw and sexy New England grunge outfit from Lowell, MA have their second single out right NOW, “Ocean Now” ahead of their album release 9/16.
Boston Hassle called the band “stripped down rock n’ roll,” think of a “raw and female-fronted version of Nirvana Unplugged,” with critic Two Thangs adding, “(Hartsel) has the…intestinal fortitude to give it 110% on the howls.”
Reinventing themselves as an angry grunge duo with throwback sounds that harken to their influences from 1990s Pacific Northwest acts like PJ Harvey and Jesus Lizard, TTT’s harsher sound is indeed reflective of palpably distressing times amid the pandemic.
TTT’s sophomore album “You’re Sorry More” will be released Sept. 16 on Cursa Records, produced by Roundy. The songs center around Hartsel’s divorce. While TTT’s summer release “Rosegold” shows the anger behind most songs on the LP, their recent release “Ocean Now” highlights the bands affinity of dynamics and willingness to take their music to a more vulnerable place. That willingness is what originally put the band on the map on “Everybody’s Worried About Us” with the delicate 60,000+ stream-ballad Lovers’ Covers, released just before the coronavirus lockdown in 2020.
TTT most notably won Lowell Folk Festival’s Battle of Bands this year.
