REQUIRED LISTENING: Greylag – “Yours to Shake”


If Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes teamed up for a fall album worth clinging to your chest, the result would be Greylag. The Portland trio has a rustic charm that boils with a bitter heart and bold defiance. Songwriting like theirs is hard to come by, especially in the last few years, so we’re welcoming it with a warm embrace in their new single “Yours to Shake.”

This track sees the band taking a hold of rock and lifting off in a spirited rebuttal, almost a completely different sound than their quiet, harmonious “Another” they shared several weeks ago. It bodes well for their self-titled debut, out October 14 via Dead Oceans, which we suggest pre-ordering asap.
