Hope you’ve got the tissues for this next song because it is an absolute tear jerker. On the eve of their forthcoming album release, Umbra, Grayscale have revealed a soaring emotional anthem called ‘Live Again’ which lives close to vocalist Collin Walsh’s heart. The song explores the feeling of watching a loved one fighting for life in the emergency room, and Collin explains how the song encapsulates a dark period of his life from the past year:
“This is a super meaningful song to us. ‘Live Again’ is about my dad getting sick last year and what that chapter was like for him and I. It was a dark time for me.”
Since the band’s second full-length Nella Vita in 2019, Grayscale have dramatically changed their style down a more soulful pop route which stems away from their alternative/rock origins. However, listening to ‘Live Again’ I can hear a beautiful connection between new and old Grayscale that hasn’t been done before and kinda makes this the band’s strongest single yet.
