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.
