Toronto's Ducks Ltd are back with a new single, "Sheets of Grey." Like last year's great Modern Fiction, this new song channels '80s janglepop with energy, noise and big hooks.

“This song is actually one of the oldest in our catalog," says singer and guitarist Tom McGreevy. "We wrote it around the same time as 'Get Bleak,' or maybe a little bit after, and played it live a bunch, but never quite finished it. We kept poking at it for a long time until we finally got it to where we wanted it to be, which happened during the Modern Fiction sessions. We ended up leaving it off the record as it didn't quite thematically fit with the other songs, but I'm excited we're finally getting to put it out as I've always liked it. It's about the inertia of depression, and how hard it can be to break out of those cycles, but also about the pleasure of embracing that state. There is a certain, temporary comfort to be found in the abyss! Somewhere right before it inevitably becomes extremely awful.”
