In un caldo pomeriggio d'estate, due giovani intellettuali, con in comune la passione per le serie tv e i film interpretati da Gianna Micheals danno vita ai GROEN. GROEN è un progetto in cui la follia avanguardistica di Groenlaz si fonde con lo spumeggiante virtuosismo di Oas (già noto per essere membro di The Frogman Prog Trio). La musica è caratterizzata da un susseguirsi di emozioni contrastanti fra loro, talvolta intense, talvolta rarefatte che annichiliscono e travolgono l'ascoltare, lasciando un senso di confusione sia fisica che mentale.
