Grey Lands debut album Right Arm is a throwback to the early days of American indie rock. Clocking in at just over 30 minutes, Right Arm’s eight tracks are washed with spiked feedback that recalls Slanted and Enchanted or even Daydream Nation along with low frequency, start/stop, Swans-esque punches of bottom-end. The album was written, produced, recorded and mixed by the band’s Wayne Petti with engineering assistance from Ryan Haslett (Sloan) and Graham Walsh (Alvvays, Metz). From the immediacy of first single ‘False Alarm’ to the Pacific North West-vibe of ‘Another Lie’ and the slow burning ‘Life Itself’, Grey Lands’ Right Arm is set to make its mark on 2015.
Fresh Snow is not music. Music died so that Fresh Snow could live. As music ascended toward the light, Fresh Snow fell down to earth. They passed each other in a corridor of indescribable beauty. They were given a message and strict instructions on how to deliver it to you. They had no pen or paper with which to write it down. Luckily it was simple: “I love you. Don’t be afraid. All is forgiven.”
