THE GREYS -
Here is a beautiful band from The Gold Coast, Australia named "The Greys" which I had the pleasure of mixing a little while back. An elusive noise outfit with a nod to the post punk/hardcore sounds of bands like Fugazi and Sonic Youth, these guys have managed to draw inspiration from the best parts of an era and mangle it into their own unique creation.
The Greys are made up Morris Lauga and Mark Duckworth, who I've had the pleasure of playing in various bands with over the years. With longtime drummer Brother "The Bat" Michael now living in Brooklyn himself. Duckworth, the spearhead is an enigma, amazing song writer and all round good guy with absolutely zero patience for an insane world destined to consume itself through stupidity and ignorance. With this as the general foundation and energy that gives the band it's fire, it was of no surprise that their new video aptly named "El Eternauta" should bring anything less.
This new video is a softly brutal, sweeping look at history through the eyes of human decadence, control and insanity, The Greys again manage to catch this sadness and loss of humanity in song that not many writers in this day and age of plastic and technology even come close to anymore.
Bravo to the homies. x
