GREYBORN: Red Fang cover of “Wires” available!

Drummer and vocalist Théo Jude comments: “We discovered Red Fang about 10 years ago with the “Murder The Mountains” album. For Theo (vocals/drums), it was a gateway to stoner music, and today we can say that Red Fang is one of our main influences. The “Wires” video obviously impressed us, but less than the song in itself, which has a form of balance that we also try to reach. You can feel the angst and heaviness, clean and punchy vocals with a sharp playing from all four musicians… Each time we listen to “Wires”, we are caught by the dramatic and epic bridge, then crushed by the riff that follows. That’s the kind of feeling we try to give our audience.”

“Joy Oladokun is one of our generation’s most powerful voices; and I am extremely lucky to be able to call her a friend, and now, a collaborator,” JORDY commented. “When I was thinking about who would be a good addition to my song ‘i get high,’ I thought of Joy immediately. A part of me giggled thinking about the times we’ve been able to share a joint or two, but the other part of me felt emotional about it; when it comes to cannabis, she understands me, and I understand her. It is our escape, it is our coping, it is our celebration. When Joy sent me her verse I nearly broke down into tears. ‘I just wanna heal without having to be scarred, I just wanna see something underneath all the things that feel so dark…so i light a fire.’ The meaning behind her words is far more beautiful than I could have ever imagined, and I feel endlessly grateful that she wanted to be a part of this.”
