Since launching in late 2014, Grey—the Los Angeles-based production duo composed of brothers Kyle and Michael Trewartha—have quickly taken the music world by storm on the strength of their viral hit singles “Starving” and “I Miss You.” Grey stepped into the big leagues via their first original release with “Starving,” a collaboration with globally acclaimed actress/singer Hailee Steinfeld featuring their mentor, Zedd, released July 2016. The breakthrough track marks Grey’s crossover into the mainstream milieu as their first platinum-certified single. The track’s stats, too, speak volumes: A bona fide hit, “Starving” reached #12 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaked at #5 on the US Top 40, and also went top 10 in Australia, Canada, and the UK. Online, the track’s official music video counts over 172 million views on YouTube, with an additional 466 million streams on Spotify.
With the success of “Starving” on deck, Grey followed up with “I Miss You,” their first official solo single. Released at the beginning of 2017 via Interscope Records, “I Miss You” delivers an emotionally intense romp through heartbreak and heartache, lead by a seductive vocal performance from Southern California trio Bahari. The Top 40-ready track already claims impressive figures, with more than 30 million streams to date, including over 25 million plays on Spotify alone.
Grey is now at the helm of their next artistic evolution with Grey, their debut EP set for release September 2017. Throughout the EP, Grey smoothly traverse an amorphous musical universe with ease and finesse, shape-shifting from its urgent beginning through to its gripping end. On Grey, a modern, free form approach to production, no sound is off limits, no genre is taboo. For proof, take a spin through “Chameleon” featuring vocalist Asia Whitacre. Structured atop a moving crescendo, the track dives headfirst into a matrix of filtered guitars and synthed-out bleeps. Grey go for the jugular on“Wings Clipped.” Featuring special guest vocal performances from Grammy Award-nominated sensation Avril Lavigne and post-hardcore hero Anthony Green, lead singer of Circa Survive and Saosin, the track is driven by aggressive guitars shredding over distorted vocal samples and full-on rocking drums. “Chameleon,” the first single off Grey, is slated for release later this summer. Grey is also supporting Zedd on his North American Echo Tour this fall.
As Grey prepares to release its forthcoming Grey EP, one thing remains absolutely clear: This is just one step into their long journey ahead. With Grey on the horizon, the duo now takes a giant leap toward their ultimate destiny.
