Greys announce new album + share the first single, “These Things Happen”

March 6, 2019 11:02 am

Beyond thrilled to share new music from Greys. Listen to the first single, “These Things Happen,” from their forthcoming record via The FADER … “[Greys] forgoes sheen with mountains of powerful, spiritualized-style fuzzes for maximum immersion.”

Age Hasn’t Spoiled You is due out May 10th. Pre-orders available here.

It coincided with the political and social climate decaying around us, which is a very peculiar experience to actually live through. Like, the last show we played in 2016 was literally a day or two before the election, and a year later there was talk of nuclear war…Our city has been gentrified to the point of being unrecognizable and inaccessible to me. Lots of changes on every level. Listening back, I think this record is largely informed by that sense of instability, musically as well as lyrically.  — Shehzaad Jiwani

Greys release surprise album “Warm Shadow”

October 5, 2016 10:51 am

We are extremely happy to announce that Greys are back with a new album. Surprise! Warm Shadow is a companion piece to Greys’ acclaimed sophomore album, Outer Heaven, comprised of original material as well as elements from that album’s recording sessions at Hotel 2 Tango in Montreal. Penning new songs, manipulating tape drones created from various studio experiments and rearranging old favourites, Warm Shadow‘s intent is to create a parallel world which illuminates the dynamic contrasts that reside on Outer Heaven and within Greys themselves. Read more about it + check out an exclusive interview via Stereogum.

Warm Shadow is available on Bandcamp as a “Pay-What-You-Can” download. All proceeds go to Sistering. Sistering is a trans-inclusive agency supporting women from across Toronto who experience first hand the impact of marginalization and poverty. They may be homeless, or are at risk of becoming homeless. They are a diverse group, from 16 to 80-plus years old: women with substance use or mental health issues; sex workers; women who have interactions with the criminal justice system; women who have experienced, or are experiencing, trauma and violence; immigrant and refugee women; women with health issues and disabilities; and women without legal status.

Cassettes are also available on the Carpark shop.

Greys share “Fresh Hell”

September 22, 2016 2:34 pm

More new music coming your way! Greys just premiered their track “Fresh Hell” via Bandcamp, boasting a new sound and a look at some of the bands who helped to influence it.

Singer Shehzaad Jiwani says of the track, “I wrote the lyrics for this song after hearing about Jian Ghomeshi’s acquittal, and of Rob Ford’s death. There seemed to be a baffling amount of support and sympathy for these public figures who were, for lack of a better term, total pieces of shit. Ghomeshi’s verdict only seemed to reinforce institutional sexism and rape culture, while Ford receiving sort of a hero’s funeral completely ignored all of the ways he affected my city and most of its residents by being a racist, homophobic misogynist. I imagined this Orwellian future where anyone who disagreed with the public opinion was violently assimilated, which I think matches the cyberpunk vibe of the song. Get me off this planet.”

Greys are hitting the road this fall. More info a tickets here.
