Tandy Culpepper Talks to Louisa Hall & Annie Nardolilli of GRIEFCAT About Their New Album, Late Stage Capitalism

In 2019, that halcyon year before we found ourselves seeking shelter from the storm known as covid, musicians of every stripe were putting the finishing touches on albums and looking forward to hitting the road to promote them.

Such was the case for a female singer-songwriting duo that met at a variety show in 2015 and found that they shared a similar quirky outlook when it comes to songwriting.

Louisa Hall and Annie Nardolilli joined forces and a zany pairing was born. One indicator of their somewhat skewed outlook on life is the name they gave themselves: Griefcat.

Their songs will make you giggle and think (imagine that). The music spans several genres from punk to country. You may find yourself singing along and dancing before you know it.

Their post-pandemic album is out now. Late Stage Capitalism examines – tongue firmly in cheek – some of the often off-kilter ways capitalism affects our lives. What it delivers: catchy melodies, thought-provoking lyrics, and tight harmonies.

Tandy Culpepper talks to Louisa and Annie about their album and about their plans to tour. Bonus: you can hear several of their singles interspersed in the interview.
