Grey Zine sign to The Native Sound, released a compilation of demos, planning new material (streams)
by Andrew Sacher
Northeastern PA’s Grey Zine have been putting out a handful of tracks over the past couple years, including multiple demos and a split with Miserable (aka former Whirr singer Kristina Esfandiari), which came out on Run For Cover. Grey Zine has now signed with The Native Sound (also home to Miserable), and are planning a self-produced EP for the spring and a Ned Russin (of Title Fight)-produced 7″ for the summer.
Before we get those new releases though, The Native Sound is releasing Grey Zine’s old demos as the compilation Destitution, which comes out today (2/25). You can grab a free download (available for one week) or purchase the limited edition cassette at The Native Sound’s site, and stream the entire compilation in this post. Like the aforementioned Whirr, their pals Nothing, or Pity Sex, Grey Zine make the kind of droning shoegaze that feels more rooted in punk and metal than indie pop. It’s heavy on the atmosphere, heavy on the distortion, and pretty good stuff. Check it out below…
