"We’ve been lucky enough to catch a glimpse of their process over the last few years, meticulously developing their sound into something truly special."
Sydney pop-punk outfit Grenade Jumper have released a new single, Fluorescent, featuring Dear Seattle.
Asking if it's lonely to fill the pain, vocalist Bianca Davino sounds sweet and comforting. With the contrast of Dear Seattle, it's the biggest Grenade Jumper to date. Bright guitars and drums and an upbeat melody, it's the perfect pick-me-up pop-punk number. Listen to the track below.
Dear Seattle commented on the collaboration on Instagram, "Grenade Jumper are not only some of the loveliest and most genuine people in the world, but they’re also one of the hardest working new bands we’ve honestly ever encountered."
The fellow Aussie band added, "We’ve been lucky enough to catch a glimpse of their process over the last few years, meticulously developing their sound into something truly special. To see that unwavering hunger seriously lit a fire in us, that youthful drive is so fucking powerful. So with our best mates Beau and Fletch (the producer of our self titled EP) on the project too, it was an absolute no brainer when they asked if we wanted to jump on a feature for one of their new tracks, and so here it is!"
Grenade Jumper have one date left on their Do You Remember? tour, at the Penny Black in Melbourne.
Grenade Jumper are Bianca Davino (vocals and rhythm guitar), Max Jacobson (lead guitar), Lukas Sikes-Gerogiannis (bass), and Dean Fernance (drums). The Do You Remember? Tour is the band's first-ever headline run, which is very exciting news for fans who have been following Grenade Jumper's upward trajectory.

The band returned in September last year with Do You Remember? Featuring John Floreani of Trophy Eyes in the pop-punk anthem of our dreams.
The band are triple j Unearthed favourites, with users writing, "I can imagine this song as a pre-teen like listening to coming back to the song years later and finding it even more relevant," "One of the best tracks around right now. Grenade Jumper sounding effortless and John Floreani on the feature to bring it that extra oomph. Could not get any better. Love it," and "The feature from Trophy Eyes' John is an eye-grabber but Grenade Jumper flex their own star power too with a super clean and hooky sound that proves their pop-punk credentials."
