THE BLUES AND GREYS
Hailing from Santa Barbara, California, The Blues and Greys infuse indie rock with electronic elements to create a dark pop backdrop over which the unique and ethereal voice of front woman Linsey Waldon shines. Since the release of their debut Bright Lights EP in the fall of 2013, The Blues and Greys have been featured at several notable media outlets, including The Huffington Post, MTV, Absolute Punk and Diffuser.fm.
The Blues and Greys’ first single, “Secrets to Shadows,” charted at #11 on the FMQB Sub Modern singles radio chart alongside notable tracks by the Arcade Fire, Cut Copy, and Chvrches. The band has also been prominently featured in commercials for Budweiser and Subaru and on popular television shows, including Awkward and Teen Mom. With their tight, energetic live show, The Blues and Greys continue to build a solid live following in Southern California, recently playing the New Noise Music Festival alongside national acts such as Haim, Holy Ghost, White Buffalo, and Andrew W.K., and a sold out show opening for Norway’s Lemaitre (Astralwerks)
The Bright Lights EP was recorded by band member Thom Flowers and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Mastering (Rogue Wave, Xiu Xiu, Japandroids). The record cover features the work of notable photographer Shane McCauley (Diplos 120 Beats Per
Minute, Blow Your Head).
