“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.

“50-50” music video

March 12, 2019 11:24 am

Toro y Moi returns with another visual portrayal of Outer Peace. This time, Chaz Bear reunited with directors Justin Morris and Colin Matsui for “50-50.” The video shows Chaz making his way through a barren wasteland, caught somewhere between a nightmare and a dream. You can watch it all here.

“50-50” is officially out in the world. Pick up a physical copy or stream at one of these trustworthy websites.

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
