From their latest album Druids and Bards, Holy Coves latest single, “Grey” is a toe tapping jam despite the lyrics peering into what I interpret as someone who may be battling depression.
It’s that contrast of darker lyrics versus brighter music that makes “Grey” remarkable. Holy Coves brings to life the awareness of mental health but doing so without going the bleak route that songs about mental health can sometimes do.
With their video by Ukrainian filmmaker Taras Merenkov, they have created that ‘grey’ feeling with a hazy lens and muted colours. Like the lyrics and music, the video is a nice contrast. The hazy lens could have easily made the video feel heavy and dark but it’s dream-like and fragile like human emotions are.
