Irish alternative rock duo LIGHT GREY have released new track ‘PRBLM’ alongside a music video, from their upcoming EP ‘Are You Even Real’, out 29th October (self release).
The new track is about being pushed aside by a friend who has addiction problems and how it feels when that friend chooses to prioritise their dependency over the friendship, which is reflected through the trippy visuals in the accompanying music video.
“The line “little pictures” in the chorus is a reference to the first picture we ever took together with our friend in a photo booth that carried a lot of sentimental value which was lost when the friendship ended,” says Mikey Connolly (bass/backing vocals).
“I actually recorded the track to submit as a project for college. I didn’t expect anything really to come of it other than for the assignment… But then I showed Mikey the track while we were in the studio writing some other songs and he loved it,” adds Ciaran Nevin (guitar/vocals).
‘PRBLM’ is the third track to be released from the band’s upcoming EP ‘Are You Even Real’, set for release later this month, following the release of tracks ‘Disassociate’ and ‘Messed Up’. The four-track collection was recorded by the band in their home studio and produced with Luke Bovill from Happydaze.
Ireland’s Light Grey are Ciaran Nevin (vocals, guitar) and Mikey Connolly(bass, backing vocals) who stepped out into the alternative music scene with the release of their debut EP ‘Beginners Luck’ in 2018. Expanding to a temporary full-band format, they subsequently released three singles throughout 2019 and 2020. In addition to facilitating the production of their own discography during that time, they have also worked on tracks alongside the likes of Sammy Clifford (WSTR) and Smrtdeath.
On the heels of a lineup change that has returned the band to their original, two-man act, the duo are now showing off their evolution with new music that marks Light Grey’s divergence into a grittier, hip-hop-accented take on 2000s punk.
