In the last two years, Greta Van Fleet has won a Grammy, performed with Elton John, and released their debut album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army. The band, who has been credited with “making rock relevant again,” aims to bring people together with their music, and they look damn good while doing it.
Jake and Josh Kiszka — 23-year-old twins — take over the vocals and guitar, respectively, while their 20-year-old brother Sam is on bass and piano and 20-year-old Danny Wagner plays the drums. The boys, who originate from Michigan, got their start as kids listening to their parents’ vinyl albums and have seemingly resonated with all of us millennials whose music interest stemmed from a similar place. Josh’s head-turning vocals paired with the rest of the band’s undeniable talent (Jake’s favorite party trick is playing his flawless riffs behind his back) have gained them an international fan base with sold-out shows around the world.
While their music can easily be described as kick-ass, let’s not forget about their fashion sense. The boys bring a touch of ’70s nostalgia to every performance, straying away from t-shirts and jeans and opting for feather headbands, skin-tight leather pants, and crochet vests instead. While the guys have arguably reclaimed modern-day rock ‘n’ roll, their Instagram reminds us that they’re still just young kids who like to goof around. Check out some of their best moments ahead.
