Paris, France based prog/stoner rock trio Grandma’s Ashes has released new music video for »Cassandra« taken from their debut full-length album, »This Too Shall Pass«, out on February 17th, 2023.

Grandma’s Ashes comments: “We’re proud to release the music video for our song »Cassandra«. We hope you like it as much as we enjoyed filming it in the peaceful French country side. This song was written in the anxiety of a world bathed in overconsumption and ignorance of mother nature. We were inspired by the myth of Cassandra, a young woman with the gift of prophecy. Cursed, she cannot be understood or believed by those around her. We hope this video will resonate within you.

Thanks to Julien Metternich, Jeanne Meens and Obso for their work.”

Grandma’s Ashes is a prog-rock power trio from Paris, France. For almost four years, the band has been gathering people to an introspective and transcendent musical journey on the roads of France. Chrystal clear, melodic vocals mingle on a heavy and precise instrumentation, between pop and melancholy.

Their first EP, »The Fates«, released in January 2021, testified to a singular vision of a modern and narrative rock. If it constitutes the first piece in the building or rather, the Gothic cathedral that Grandma’s Ashes is building, the group is not yet finished enchanting you!

First Grandma’s Ashes album »This Too Shall Pass« is out on February 17, 2023. After the release of a successful heavy rock debut EP »The Fates«, the ladies are up for a more progressive new opus. This upcoming album showcases the wild range of possibilities Grandma’s Ashes’ ingenious musicianship offers.

“Everything is going to disappear, including this album, our music and ourselves. This is a way to express the finitude of materiality. It’s dark and disillusioned at the same time, it represents our attitude regarding adulthood; we realise that what we thought was eternal and unshakeable is actually ephemeral, evolves and changes before disappearing forever.” explains the band.
