God Tiny

God Tiny Drops new video for "Awaken," plays Mercury on 09.23

There is nothing small about God Tiny's sound: the Brooklyn-based psych/garage rockers serve up frenetic, down-and-dirty rock action, and their new video for single, "Awaken," perfectly deliver that action and that dirt on a visual level. The black-and-white work features a female protagonist, roaming the streets and taking names and is chocks full of the vintage vibes, visceral kicks and (literal) punches that we've come to love from the band. The clip is a real treat, and seeing such a gutsy, raw, and fun visual accompaniment to God Tiny's music is something we never knew we needed, but we're not sure if we could now live without. Check out "Awaken" streaming below, and catch the band live at The Mercury Lounge (where we're sure they'll be taking some names of their own) on 9/23. - Olivia Sisinni 

From our live listings submissions: God Tiny plays The Knit on 05.26

To promote our new, uber-fantastic DIY NYC live listings section (check it out, you can post your show for free here - it will then appear also on our NYC homepage 2-3 days before the event's date!), we are highlighting some of the artist that already used this nifty tool.

God Tiny is a quintet that pulls off blues rock remarkably well - which ain't easy, because it's a genre that, due to its limited harmonic palette, can get boring easily. The Brooklyn band, though, in particular in single "Cosmos" is able to create an engaging, tense, and imaginative psychedelic arrangement, enhanced by powerful riffs and gorgously gritty distorted guitars. The vocals deserve a particular mention too, as they soar above the sea of instruments with a tone and flair reminiscent young Robert Plant. If they can pull all of this off live when they play The knit on 05.26, the audience will be in for a treat. Check out track "Revolution Run" streaming below.


Deli Premiere: Garage rockers, God Tiny drop new single "Cosmos"

For those out there searching for an artist that perfectly balances the sounds of garage and psych while proudly wearing a strong blues influence on their sleeves, Brooklyn-based five-piece, God Tiny, might be exactly what the doctor ordered (think Blue Cheer but with a more friendly, modern facelift). We here at the Deli are excited to premiere the band's latest single: "Cosmos." The track lays down grooves chock full of fuzzy garage goodness, but also offers bluesy riffs that hit like a sledgehammer (stream it below). Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for The Space Inside Your Head, the band's new album out 5/26, and catch the band live the same day at the Knitting Factory alongside Stuyedeyed, Ghost King, and Greasy Hearts. - Olivia Sisinni

From The Deli NYC's online music submissions: God Tiny

From the moment you press play on God Tiny's epic rocking release from March, the seven minute 'Fearless' (streaming), things have already begun their descent into madness - a psychedelic blues kind of madness. With lyrics like 'Fly your freak if u want to, Your skin's got such lovely hue,' and lengthy but tasteful intertwining fuzz guitar solos, you know their upcoming LP is bound to bounce off into some interesting directions. For a band comfortable exploring sounds that haven't been hot in Brooklyn in a couple of generations, it's exciting to see what will come of this newly founded psychedelic eclecticism. Check it out and stay tuned for a new release later this year. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
