LIGHT GREY reveal music video for track ‘Messed Up’

Irish alternative rock duo LIGHT GREY have revealed a music video for ‘Messed Up’, the latest track to be released from their upcoming EP ‘Are You Even Real’, out 29/10 (self release).

“The central theme of ‘Messed Up’ pulls on the hurtful words people use in the heat of the moment and that no one really means what they are saying when it comes to these words. This song serves as a middle finger to anyone who throws hate around,” says Ciaran Nevin (vocals/guitar) of the track.

He adds, “For the video, we were really inspired by the recent resurgence of fish eye lenses in music videos. It makes everything look like a 90’s skate video and I think that fits perfectly because the track sounds like it should be in a Tony Hawk video game.”

“The video also pays homage to the hallmark of scratchy graffiti writing that seems to show up quite frequently in every era of punk.” says Mikey Connolly (bass/backing vocals).

‘Messed Up’ is the second track to be released from the band’s upcoming EP ‘Are You Even Real’, set for release 29th October, following the release of track ‘Disassociate’. The four-track collection came together from a recent stint in the studio and was co-produced by the band alongside HappyDaze’s Luke Bovil. 

Ireland’s Light Grey are Ciaran Nevin (vocals, guitar) and Mikey Connolly (bass, backing vocals) who stepped out into the alternative music scene with the release of their debut EP ‘Beginners Luck’ in 2018. Expanding to a temporary full-band format, they subsequently released three singles throughout 2019 and 2020. In addition to facilitating the production of their own discography during that time, they have also worked on tracks alongside the likes of Sammy Clifford (WSTR) and Smrtdeath.

On the heels of a lineup change that has returned the band to their original, two-man act, the duo are now showing off their evolution with new music that marks Light Grey’s divergence into a grittier, hip-hop-accented take on 2000s punk.
