VON GREY have premiered their third single from In Bloom: Acoustic, “Dawn” – LISTEN HERE. Vulnerable and compassionate, the song’s lyrics reminds us to listen and comfort those often unheard and in need of care and understanding. By stating, “I want to be a soft shoulder for you to lean on,” the song’s singer represents a nurturing sister, sympathetically uplifting a loved one and creating unity between the two. While tenderly consoling the individual, the singer gently prompts her to remember that despite her experiences of trauma, which are so frequently silenced or distorted, she shouldn’t lose hope, because “hope will be in the light corners of the dawn.”
The song highlights VON GREY’s swandive back into their Southern culture and folk roots on In Bloom: Acoustic. Of the album’s first release, “Plans“.
Still forthcoming from In Bloom: Acoustic, VON GREY’s new, self-produced, six song EP set for release on July 20, 2018, area pair of yet to be released new song “Unclean” and reimagined versions of “Poison in the Water,” and “Closer To You.”
“Dawn” signifies the resilient and imperious musicians (and women) VON GREY have become, despite their young age, (Kathryn 23, Annika 22, and Fiona 20). The classically trained sisters are wise and strong souls who understand their craft and their worth as seasoned vets (+500 shows, Late Night stops, festival appearances) who entered the industry in their early teens.
The depth of their music reflects their experience. The lyrics, which are intentionally barbed and deliberately serrated, position VON GREY flawlessly as the resilient and imperious women that they are. Laced over their signature intermingled and elegant vocals, that power projects their passionate narratives of (song meanings) energetically over infectiously poignant and melancholy cellos, mandolins, violins and piercing drums.
