There’s something to be said for honesty in music. On their new song, “Say Something,” Philadelphia quintet Grayscale slow things down ever-so-slightly and dig deep internally to deliver three minutes and 27 seconds of poignant pop-punk loaded with “whoas,” great guitarwork and emotionally painful lyrics. The band explain:
“The song stems from the pain and frustration of loss. While the band were recording at the studio, Collin found out that his home burned down. The song depicts a destroyed house full of memories and a living room once filled with lively conversation and dancing. It relates to the visceral feeling of standing in a spot that once was vibrant and housed so many memories, but is now completely empty and abandoned.”
“Say Something” is taken from Grayscale’s upcoming EP, Change, which comes out April 14 on Anchor Eighty Four Records.
