'This House' is the newest offering from indie four piece Earl Gray Collective. With glorious harmonies, subtle guitar hooks and a neat shuffling groove, the release is arguably Earl Gray's best yet.
Speaking of their latest track, Earl Gray Collective said:
“'This House’ is a song that really takes you on a journey, the lyrics describe an eye opening moment in my life when I realised I had some unhealthy and sometimes unconscious biases that I needed to confront and deal with. We really tried to capture that journey in the song leaving loads of space for the story and the structure to develop and ultimately to create this moment of real unity at the end.”
Hailing from Cardiff, Hampshire, Woking and Australia, the four-piece originated when lead singer Will Gray and drummer Katie Earl met at university. On hearing each other's last names they decided that they should either get married or start a band. Needless to say, in 2018 the band was finally formed. The band went through an incubation period figuring out its style, identity and musical direction but with 2 new members added - Zac Guy (Electric Guitar) and Alex Neil (Bass) Earl Gray Collective’s direction was set and their first EP released. The band have already amassed over 5000 streams, and gained support from notable tastemakers such as Alice Amel at Riverside Radio, as well as John Kennedy at Radio X, who recently played their singles ‘Holiness’ and ‘Landslide’.
With influences reaching as far as Jamie Cullum, John Mayer, Amber Run, Matt Corby, Paramore and many more, Earl Gray Collective’s style is unique and ever evolving, always striving for the future yet constantly indulging the past. With their vast number of influences both past and present woven into every note that they write, Earl Gray Collective have seen hoards of people both old and young finding solace within their songs. As they continue to catch the ears of many new fans, Earl Gray Collective continue to build on their successes and undoubtedly have an exciting future ahead of them.
