Grey’s highly anticipated upcoming EP Cult Classic vocalizes these cultural issues and expresses Grey’s vulnerability and anger towards the world we are living in and her desires for the world we are shaping. Produced by Grammy award-winning Mike Schuppan (Paramore, M83, Ziggy Marley) and mastered by Dave Cooley (Fitz & The Tantrums, Stone Temple Pilots), the release is packed with powerful storytelling and imaginative visuals. Grey admits, “Each song has its own identity and story it wants to tell”. Sonically the EP is built around organic instrumentation, fusing modern electronic soundscapes while ensuring that the production doesn’t take away from the honesty of the music. Featuring string arrangements, full choirs and authentic instruments, the release delivers listeners with a dynamic and dimensional experience. Having been described by Galore Magazine as “bringing Hollywood glamour to a sultry story of love, drugs and vanity” and adding theatrical elements, Grey is essentially the Elizabeth Taylor of the modern pop music industry.
Leading single ‘Money’ focuses on the cultural infatuation with pop culture and the hierarchy of the “influencer era”universe we live in. The bold single is a clear indication of Grey’s staple sound of ‘dirty pop’, using dramatic strings and powerful lyricism to underscore it’s powerful message. Another stand-out track on the EP, ‘Dirty Dream,’ showcases the range of Grey’s songwriting. It’s an upbeat, dance worthy anthem, portraying the obsessive tendencies we have have with falling in and out of love. “It’s a dance through the breakup type song”, admits Grey.
