PALE GREY announces new album WAVES!

Previously discovered on European festivals like Great Escape (UK), Mama (FR) or Dour (BE), Pale Grey comes back in 2017. Locked in their studio for more than a year, the band is back with a range of new titles mixing folk-pop, minor introspections, sounds experimentations, hip hop and electronica.

A singular atmosphere made of a strong identity, a combination of contrasts and consistency, of contradictions and continuity of evolution and permanency. Each song, in his sobriety and unicity, is full of presence and density. It is like his whole original story has been recycle into a new beat, adapted to the current complex sonorities and sublimate by the strength of differences and oppositions.

Based on « wave » files exchanges, Pale Grey’s music is a real collective work. Everything starts like a game with the envy to surprise others by sending pieces of works, tunes, new sounds they made and along the way it all create new sounds. The result of this is multifaceted musics, a mix of clarity and a deep research on sounds and emotions.

The process began in 2015, when the band ends up with two years on tour. The travels and the connections they made hone their tastes. By then, an apartment become their place to gather and the laboratory of this new album. It is a place to live, to play, to experiment production work and sounds researches. Compression, deterioration of the sounds matter, the samples are tools to express their state of mind.
Melancholia has become a way to convey emotions. They are convinced that to last, each tune has to touch, to carry the emotions they want to express.

Around mid 2016, the French producer Yann Arnaud (Air, Phoenix,…), took part of the project. He directly saw the huge potential of this mix of hot and cold sounds, the combination of the computer with real instruments, mix of ether and flesh, that make the particularity of Pale Grey’s music. Troughs the lyrics and the melody, Pale Grey works to reconcile the air with the ground, the aerial with the carnal.

The songs of ‘Waves’ have been refined in Paris, where they have had a perfect sized crucible made of darkness and light. The fusion succeed in multiple ways : fusion of samples as tribute ; fusion of voice and music ; fusion of genres (ref to the hip hop featuring with Serengeti (Anticon, Sisyphus Why?…), fusion of high tech and soft imperfections that offer kindness and intense humanity.

The new album ‘Waves’ will be release on October the 13th  with a big release party show at AB in Brussels.
