Love Thy Neighbour: Greyjoy - Distance

Love Thy Neighbour: Greyjoy - Distance

Monday 20th May, 2013 9:15AM

This week our pals over at Who The Hell introduce us to a Perth band who sound like they're a Sydney band who named themselves after Game of Thrones, called Greyjoy, and their track 'Distance':

In case the reference wasn’t apparent enough - yes, Greyjoy is a Game of Thrones reference. These Perth guys aren’t just a bunch of TV-gruffs though. Their sound is a lot more interesting than horsemeat consumption, the plague or the gratuitous bad sex offered by said reference, so you should probably listen up. A project between Karlin Courtney and Matt Crocket, Greyjoy began somewhere in between meeting through friends and purchasing a Juno 6 two years ago.

Greyjoy definitely have a ‘Sydney’ sound going on. The interwebs makes the state by state divide a little less divisive these days, but it’s not to say that bands still don’t hop onto scenes and sub-scenes in their own pockets of town. While some people are still set in tunnel vision that everyone from Perth is either pedal-heavy or still frothing over Xavier Rudd, “garden shed” producers making sunny synth-pop like these guys prove otherwise.

Greyjoy’s self-titled debut EP is one for late nights and early mornings. 'Distance' is the standout track on this - It's laced with the hydrogenated vocals, ascending guitar lines and type of sunny-side-up pop you'd expect from anyone basking in yearly sunshine. Watch these guys.
