Let me introduce you to Greyjoy, a duo (Karlin Courtney & Matt Crockett) from Australia who you should be listening to. If you read this blog, there’s a good chance you’re going to become a big fan of these guys after hearing their sounds.
This summer they released their debut EP, which consists of 5-tracks that bath in all the best elements of synth-friendly dream pop. They live in the finest world of dream-pop wonder on the shimmering “Idle Thoughts” which features quite a delicious bassline. “Distane” has some elements and melodies that remind me of Passion Pit, minus the heavier synth overload. Then you have the lovely ballad “Emerald.”
Most recent singles “Complications” is a r&b jam that could be happily mistaken as a lost Hot Chip track. They’ve got the right ideas to transcend many different genres and elements, all while creating their own unmistakable sound. I’m quite impressed with how far along this young duo is, and urge you to check them out and keep them locked on your radar.
These guys have a bright future ahead of them, and are a band you need to watch. Mark my words, Greyjoy are the real deal.
