Gram-Of-Fun (GOF) is a six-member group of friends sharing similar values in art as in life. The ensemble found its name in 2017 but its success took wing a year later in 2018. Listening to their creations, it is clear their sound is unique and the band dares to experiment with different tones and approaches.
GOF is not afraid to shake things up. They have experimented with different music styles such as funk, soul, indie, alt-pop, and electronica. GOF is characterised by various co-projects and collaborations with other musicians or artists. From the very beginning, their graphical designs have been created by the talented Tauri Birken (UK, The Times). The band members are united by the desire to change the world of music and with their creations, make the world a happier place.
In 2018, after GOF signed with Made in Baltics (Sony), the band released its first single ‘Getaway’. In the same year, GOF was an opening act for the world-famous neosoul collective Jungle.
In the spring of 2019, GOF came out with its first EP titled ‘Second Breakfast’. The EP's opening track ‘Reservation’ quickly became a success and landed among R2's most played songs of the year.
In 2020, when the pandemic took hold, the band moved from the stage into the studio and engaged in many collaborations. The song ‘LA’ with Fredi was the first to reach the audience and quickly rose to the top of the radio charts. In October, the song ‘Melancholy’ and its nostalgic music video was released. In the same year, GOF also came out with a collaboration song ‘Numbrid Ei Valeta’ with an Estonian hip-hop artist Reket.
Next year, in 2021, ‘Lost in a Dance’ – the collective's most successful song was born and became one of the most played songs on domestic radio stations. Within the same year, GOF released ‘Halo’ with the German singer Hueby and ‘Corner of My Eye’ with Jon Hazel and Yasmyn. The band also helped write and produce Frankie Animal's song ‘Peaches’. In 2021, GOF performed an insane number of concerts in Estonia, the biggest events being the Sume festival, Grind, and Funkfest. At the end of the year, the band was joined by a good friend Fredi (Guitar).
The beginning of 2022 has started diligently. They signed to a homegrown label “Smuuv” & want to delight the audience with its first long-playing debut album by the end of this year.
