Recording: Greys

Artist: Greys

Song: Chick Singer

Recorded at the MOCCA Courtyard (NXNE 2014: "Of Sound Mind"), June 22, 2014.

Greys - Chick Singer

Given the amount of rancour that had surfaced between the festival and elements of the local DIY scene, it was somewhat amusing to see some of the latter gathered together at this "indie label fair" on the festival's final day. Organized by Sonic Boom and People Put Out Productions, this felt like it had its fingers a bit more firmly on the street-level pulse than a lot of NXNE doings. It was nice to see records and tapes getting purchased and there were some cool bands playing outside in the courtyard, which helped send the festival off on a happier note than it began on.

Giving a push to their freshly-released debut long player If Anything, Greys were all over the place during the festival. As we speak, the band is taking the album on the road to the West Coast of the USA, but they'll be returning for a proper local release party at DIY punk space S.H.I.B.G.B.s on August 8th.
