The Grey Merchant - The Last Transmission
Info: The Grey Merchant is the collaborative recording project of Cork based Indie trio Neon Atlas’ bassist Enda O’Flaherty and a collection of friends and fellow musicians. Drawing comparisons with classic noise and stoner rock, influences like Kyuss and Fu Manchu can be heard.
‘THE LAST TRANSMISSION’ is the follow up to their debut single release ‘Spotless (The Protecting Veil’ which was released in November last year, receiving significant airplay both in Ireland and internationally, particularly in the UK, USA, France, Canada and …The Mauritius
The Grey Merchant are currently in the studio putting the final touches to their debut long-player release which is expected sometime in the late spring of 2017.
The second single from The Grey Merchant is an absolute stomper of a track, a whirling mix of mid-90's and contemporary alternative rock, 'The Last Transmission' rips up the ground in its path. Thunderous drumming, swarming guitar riffs and moments of euphoric elevation all create a wondrous atmosphere that is a delight to soak up. At times recalling Therapy? and at others the grittier rock moments of early The Frames (think 'God Bless Mom'), the track has it all, now with two very, very solid singles under the belt, we await eagerly for The Grey Merchant's album release this year.
