Greylag – “Yours To Shake”
“Another,” the first track Portland folk-rockers Greylag shared from their self-titled debut album, left me thinking about Led Zeppelin at their most folksy as filtered through Fleet Foxes at their most muscular. “Yours To Shake,” the album’s second single, does not shake those references but expands upon them, trading the previous track’s rustic tones for big, brooding, vintage Pac-NW indie-rock a la Death Cab and Band Of Horses. “What’s it worth to ya?” they sing. “Say you wanna feel the fire but you don’t wanna get burned?” The riffs are gnarly too, in case you forgot these guys can really play. Prepare for Greylag’s world domination below.
