greys interview

Outer Heaven  Is Out April 22nd Via Carpark Records.

Toronoto post-hardcore quartet Greys have shared ‘No Star’, the first track to be taken from their upcoming second album Outer Heaven. The track was written in the aftermath of the terror attacks in Paris last year, while also exploring vocalist/guitarist Shehzaad Jiwani’s complicated relationship with his own voice as a person of colour.

“On one side, you had people burning down mosques and acting violently towards anyone who looked remotely Muslim. On the other, you had people speaking on behalf of the victims and effectively telling them how they should feel about such atrocities,” says Jiwani. “It’s a song about not knowing where you fit in as a person of colour who was raised in a predominantly white community, not identifying completely with either side. It’s about not having a voice, but moreover not knowing where or when or how to speak regardless. It’s about wanting someone to understand and relate to you, but most importantly, letting you speak for yourself.”
