Graywave is releasing her new single Like Heaven on 18th December, and I wondered whether you might consider giving it some airplay on your radio station? If there is a specific DJ or show that it would be best to get in touch with, i’d be super grateful for their contact details. I’ve included a short press release, bio and links to the track below.
The new single by Graywave, ‘Like Heaven’, is the first single off of her upcoming debut EP ‘Planetary Shift’. ‘Like Heaven’ is a dark evolution of previous Graywave material and is lyrically more intelligent and coherent. The use of heavier guitar tones and vocal harmonies as well as studio recorded drums pushes this track into a louder, grittier territory that has not been heard in previous Graywave releases.
“‘Like Heaven’ is ultimately about the struggle of light and dark within oneself. The lyrics aim to capture a sense of self destruction and a strange urge to self sabotage. The song is about that darker side of myself that pushes doubt and lack of self worth to the forefront.”
Graywave is the solo musical venture of multi-disciplined artist Jess Webberley. The first single of the project, ‘Afternoon Escapism’ was released April 2019 and has since then achieved over 1000 streams on Spotify.
Taking influence from the likes of Men I Trust, Slowdive, Crumb, and Widowspeak, Graywave aims to create music to make you feel as though you are elsewhere. The combination of dreamy chords, shoegaze inspired guitar leads and powerful vocals creates a distinctive, recognisable sound.
One year in and Graywave has played a number of shows in the West Midlands alongside the likes of Slow Crush, Petal and VENUS, as well as making it down to Bristol. The addition of a full band for live performances really helps convey the impactful sound that can be heard on record. The most recent release [June 2020] ‘With Me’ has had a wealth of radio
play, including making it onto the Brum Radio A List and being played twice on Coventry & Warwickshire BBC Introducing. The track has also been subject to some great reviews from publications all over the globe.
Graywave has had a promising first year, and now Jess looks to step up the game with the release of a 5 track EP, the first single being ‘Like Heaven’. This single demonstrates a new level of songwriting and production for Graywave and is a sign of what is to come next.
