“With feedback-saturated guitars, catchy melodies, and the sore-throat yowls of frontman Shehzaad Jiwani, Greys sound like lost transmissions from the underground punk scene that thrived in the years between Nirvana and Limp Bizkit.” – Rolling Stone. For the record, I would have referenced Hed (pe) at the end.
Having deep seeded roots in Saskatoon’s long since disbanded basement punk scene, they dispatch an arsenal that’s saturated with modern hardcore, ’90s screamo temperament, and soaring post-rock arrangements
“The quintet sidesteps easy categorization with a lot of what they do. After an opening instrumental with mild surf influences, they ran the gamut of wide-ranging songs, working in noisy, punk-ish bits into their rock formula.” – Exclaim!
The Artsy Chicks
The Artsy Chicks are a five piece instrumental band based in Montreal, Quebec. Their music explores a multitude of genres, ranging from catchy surf rock to sonic assaults of avant-garde free improv and noise.
