Introducing: Grey\\Water

Grey\\WaterSome new artists are more mysterious than others. With little more on their Facebook page than a list of members' names, a declared interest for Steve Buscemi (who can blame them?), and a cover photo of the band, Grey\\Water leave much to the imagination. But with their brilliant single "Jimmy" to do much of the talking for them, the Toronto-based outfit has been growing a strong reputation in the online press ahead of the release of their EP due in the autumn.

Starting as a solo vocalist a couple of years ago, Charlotte Grace Victoria has since surrounded herself with a plethora of musical friends to create her indie-infused sound. With a chorus reminiscent of the likes of The Naked and Famous and Friendly Fires, and a rich wash of instruments that rings of Bears Den and perhaps even M83, "Jimmy" has all the hallmarks of an excellently crafted indie electro-pop standard. But Charlotte's vocals, floating airily over the fizzing energy of the track and bearing comparison to Blonde Redhead's Kazu Makino, give the song something a little different. The sublime build-up and eruption into its final chorus make the track a delight to listen to. And with the buzz around the single, Grey\\Water are building an exciting platform from which to launch the new EP...

Find out more about Grey\\Water (sort of) on Facebook, and listen to "Jimmy" below.
