Sometimes we have hectic days where everything seems hectic and on the go; spiraling, hustling and bustling. On days like those I find the best remedy usually to be a deep breath combined with a playlist filled with songs that calm the soul. Whether you are looking to relax, take a step back or simply enjoy some lovely Canadian music, then you’ll want to have a listen to Grey Kingdom.
Based in Welland, Ontario, Spencer Burton creates music which simultaneously soothes and stirs. With each track telling a story, the music is lovely while also being beautifully haunting. Having fallen in love with their 2012 EP The Weeping Suns, I anxiously awaited their 2013 release Light, I’ll Call Your Name Out Darkness. Being a huge fan of music which evokes imagery of wilderness and wandering, I naturally fell in love with all 11 tracks. The album blends echoing vocals, crisp melodies and folky guitar to create something mystical.
Looking for a new remedy to heal the stress of your day? Then check out Grey Kingdom on Bandcamp where you can relax to their discography. I suggest starting with their newest record, Blue Bird and Immense Failure are personal favourites. Don’t forget to also follow them on Facebook and Twitter to stay posted.
