The much-ballyhooed “death” of rock has led to an unusual side effect: As shaggy dudes playing loud guitars recede from the spotlight, the few remaining rock acts have grown even more precious to the diehards. This explains the rapid rise of Greta Van Fleet, a Michigan quartet of three brothers and one friend who are selling out large halls before they’ve even released a full-length album (and before two of the members have reached legal drinking age). A listen to either of GVF’s startlingly competent EPs, Black Smoke Rising and From the Fires, reveals why: These kids are hidebound devotees to the Orthodox Church of Led Zeppelin, replicating that band’s swing, swagger, and screeching vocals with an almost astonishing amount of confidence. They’ve gained acclaim for a powerful live show, and with their much anticipated debut album due in October, Greta Van Fleet are poised to become absolutely massive. When they do, enjoy their riffs, which really are good—but just be ready to ignore the countless think-pieces that say, “Rock is back!”
