‘Like Heaven’ is the latest single by Birmingham, UK based dreampop outfit Graywave, fronted by Jess Webberly. It’s heavy, gritty and simply a massive tune.
The intro is brooding and hazy, with warm modulated guitar tones and reverb soaked vocals. It serves as the crescendo into the epic ferocious wall of sound that is the chorus. Webberly’s delicate vocals are lifted by the driving force of Zak Jenkins' powerful drum performance. Complementing this is the rigorous bass line and ambient lead guitar melodies, which add an extra sense of depth and space to the track. Lyrics such as “Gilded light fills the skies” perfectly describe the mood of the track, as it makes you feel like you’re transcending into a heavenly realm.
Graywave’s new single ‘Before’ drops on January 15th. In the meantime check out the video for ‘Like Heaven’, that was shot by Jack Parker below!
