Greys - Outer Heaven Vinyl Record
Greys Outer Heaven is the new vinyl record from the Toronto based post-punk band.
This is the follow-up to 2015's EP Repulsion and they only build on that success with this full length record. There are a lot of sounds happening here, an attack on your senses, but there remains a melodic handle to hold on to. Frontman Shehzaad Jiwani returns with his biting lyrical pronouncements with enough tongue in cheek to make you want to listen closely. The sound is so deep in layers that Outer Heaven is a huge step forward for the Greys on their sophomore album.
This young quartet seem fearless in their musicianship, truly making some unique decisions for the world of post-punk. Critics are buzzing about this record with Pitchfork Media giving it a strong 7.8 out of 10. Stuart Berman, in his Pitchfork review wrote, "Outer Heaven's heightened ambitions are best measured in terms of density rather than sprawl: the most bracing songs here pack in more radiant guitar textures, a greater lyrical depth, and sharper hooks without sacrificing Greys' innate moshability and punk-schooled economy."
Outer Heaven was recorded in Montreal at Hotel 2 Tango Studios (Arcade Fire, Godspeed You!, and Black Emporer have recorded there) with longtime producer Mike Rocha at the control board.
