“Age Hasn’t Spoiled You” album stream

May 8, 2019 11:48 am

A very special album is coming out this Friday, and thanks to Hype Machine, you can stream that very special album two days early. Listen to Greys' new record Age Hasn't Spoiled You right here.

You still have time to pre-order the record! Check it out on the Carpark shop.

A richly textured experience, the album draws influence from krautrock, industrial, hip hop, dub, psychedelia, jazz, ambient, drone and more, sometimes within the same song. That this mix of sounds never obscures the album’s sharp focus is a testament to the group’s finely honed approach to both songwriting and production. Inspired by the stylistic sprawls of classic third albums like The Beastie Boys' Check Your Head, PJ Harvey's To Bring You My Love or The Talking Heads' Fear Of Music - records where artists reinvented themselves as something far beyond what was previously thought possible for them - on Age Hasn’t Spoiled You, the always ambitious Greys attempt to throw off the weight of genre or expectation, and break through the boundaries of their sound.

“Arc Light” music video

March 27, 2019 12:02 pm

Second single from Greys’ new record is out today via the YouTube. It’s heavy, and distorted, and encapsulates everything the band is putting forth in Age Hasn’t Spoiled You. Watch the vid for “Arc Light” here, directed by Rachelle Walker.

Shehzaad Jiwani on the video:
If there were one song to communicate everything Greys is about, it would be “Arc Light.” This is the first song we recorded for Age Hasn’t Spoiled You at the top of 2018, and each song we wrote over the year we spent making the album could trace a piece of itself back to this one. Musically, it’s everywhere we’ve been and everywhere we’re going. We tried to reimagine and recontextualize the tools we are comfortable using to make something new. The lyrics try to evoke a number of things within each line – mental exhaustion, content fatigue, tours of duty and alienation – and the images in the video reflect these overlapping concepts. The song lands somewhere between Unwound’s New Plastic Ideas and Check Your Head by the Beastie Boys. Or something. I don’t know. You tell me.

Age Hasn’t Spoiled You isn’t due out until May 10th, but you can pre-order the record from the Carpark shop and/or stream the first two single on your favorite streaming service.
