Listen to “No Star,” the Latest Track from Greys



Noisey Toronto rockers, Greys, will return on April 22 with their new full-length album, Outer Heaven (via Buzz Records and Carpark.) A major reason to get excited for the album’s release is one of the songs that’s emerged from it: “No Star.”

The song was influenced by the 2015 Paris terrorist attacks and “addresses the politicized reaction to the attacks while reflecting on vocalist/guitarist Shehzaad Jiwani’s complex relationship with his own voice as a person of colour.”

Explains Jiwani: “On one side, you had people burning down mosques and acting violently towards anyone who looked remotely Muslim. On the other, you had people speaking on behalf of the victims and effectively telling them how they should feel about such atrocities. It’s a song about not knowing where you fit in as a person of colour who was raised in a predominantly white community, not identifying completely with either side. It’s about not having a voice, but moreover not knowing where or when or how to speak regardless. It’s about wanting someone to understand and relate to you, but most importantly, letting you speak for yourself.”
