"We like it. Aside from that, who fucking cares?"
That's Toronto-based punk band Greys when asked if they think people will embrace their third and most recent LP Age Hasn’t Spoiled You, out now via Carpark Records. Obviously, we like it, too, as the track "These Things Happen" is our featured Song of the Day. In an interview with Fader Magazine, frontman Shehzaad Jiwani offered some insight to the track:
This song is about perspective and understanding during chaotic times... I wanted to superimpose the socially and spiritually conscious energy of the late 60s onto our current political climate and the pervasive numbness people can feel towards opposing viewpoints when they are exhausted by their news feeds. There's so much information that you stop hearing what people might be saying. I was watching and reading lots of material about the Black Panthers, the Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War protests and how that dovetailed with the rise of psychedelic drugs at the time, and how these two things could lead towards some common ground between politically polarized entities by simply trying to hear both sides out. You can feel incensed to rebel against something while also yearning for a deeper understanding of your neighbours at the same time.
