Adam Roth left the south to pursue music in Los Angeles. It was there he met up with two producers from Stockholm who inspired him to meld his Americana roots with electronic production. Thus, Grizfolk was born, and it's been a quick ascent to the spotlight since then.

Their song "The Struggle" received airplay on television show The Originals, and the band has been in frequent rotation at KCRW. Their ties to the local music community in southern California have enabled them to spread their wings throughout the rest of the country and internationally.

For this performance on New Hot, the band talks about their debut EP, Swedish musical influences, going on tour with ZZ Ward and more.

Songs performed: "Hymnals," "Waiting For You" and "The Struggle"
