WATCH // Greylag Release “Yours To Shake” Video Via NPR Music, Share “Songs That Inspire Us” Mix Via Guitar World

We’d like to welcome to the world the first of many Greylag videos. The Portland trio enlisted director Ben Fee to construct a video to match the intensity of single “Yours to Shake” from their debut album Greylag. Watch the trippy video above or at NPR Music.

“Often times, people are after things that they are just instinctively drawn towards. Whether or not those things are good for them, doesn’t matter too much. And those things also blind those people in the process—making them bypass, misuse, under appreciate some really magical things in the journey. Even when they fly so close to their goal, and they can see it could be the end of them, the folks still go further. This doom, and perspective, and instinct, we wanted to paint in a visually poetic way, so as to give a strong feeling, instead of beating a message into the viewers heads with an obvious ABC narrative.” – Ben Fee, Director

But wait, there’s more! The band has also thrown together a Spotify playlist detailing “Songs That Inspire Us” for Guitar World. Check it out here.

WATCH // Greylag Release New “Another” Video, Tour Dates With The Whigs, New Album Out October 14th

“‘Another’ is the first track on Greylag’s tremendously appealing self-titled debut (due out October 14), and it sets the tone for the record’s catchy and briskly strummed mini epics… the widescreen majesty of this music is decidedly rock.”

A little less than a month after announcing their eponymous debut album, Portland-based Greylag share the new video for lead single “Another.” Premiering via PASTE this morning, the video captures the trio’s live performance from a recent stop in their hometown, and for those of you have yet to get a taste of their live sound, watch the video above or on Youtube. Like what you see? The band has got a string of shows supporting The Whigs coming up in October. Full list of dates below.
