Gray Days – ‘Going Nowhere’

by Thomas Bedward March 25, 2022

Gray Days – ‘Going Nowhere’

An enigmatic artist based in New South Wales’ Central Coast, Gray Days first appeared on our radar late last year with the release of his debut single, ‘Transcend’. Built upon a nostalgic sound that mixed heartfelt indie with subtle pop leanings, Gray Days’ debut was an emotive release that caught us totally off guard, so when news broke of a new single, we weren’t going to miss it.

Titled ‘Going Nowhere’, the new cut is an impressive continuation for Gray Days, building on the cascading sounds of ‘Transcend’ and branching out into more ruminative atmospheric sounds. Opening onto a stream of shimmering acoustic sounds that ebb and flow with a fading refrain, ‘Going Nowhere’ instantly encapsulates a sense of isolation, building emotion into every lingering note. As the instrumentals build, tempered drums make themselves heard, while Gray Day’s nu-wave vocals drift in and out of focus.

Capturing the essence of the track through lyrics like “I tried to stay, but my thoughts tended to stray, so now I’m moving on”, and the timeless refrain of “goodbye” that repeats through each chorus, it’s a song that is simple, but wonderfully effective.

Featuring some stellar artists like Michael Greville and Adam Church, along with mastering and production by Trent and Simon Dobson, the song is a true steppingstone for Gray Days, and it’s perfectly accompanied by Georgia Hills’ artwork.

Available now on all major platforms, ‘Going Nowhere’ is an essential new release that will have you enraptured from start to finish, delivering exactly three minutes of dark indie musings.

Score: 8.5/10
