Greycoats


It's a rare thing to find smart, poetic lyricism in pop music. Greycoats' anglo-rock manages to spend both words and melody wisely.

They will soon be embarking on a U.S. tour in support of their new release, so be sure to catch their energetic and transcendent shows, as their rich and multi-layered sound is always a head-turning affair.
