GREYSKIES (Iceland) - 'Rhoads' (single)
GREYSKIES is the pseudonym of 25 year-old Icelandic singer-songwriter Steinar Baldursson who’s set to release his third single ‘Rhoads’ on March 26th. It follows on from February’s single “Hurts So Bad” - a radio friendly blend of buzzing synths and trap beats with an epic mini-guitar solo - and last years debut ‘Numb’ which was much of the same.
There’s no doubting GREYSKIES’ ear for a catchy hook or his ability to blend beats and bass to produce a punchy sound. It’s also a testament to the multi-instrumentalist that he manages to make Rhoads sound quite so immense. As the PR for the single claims, this is stadium-ready pop, and that’s hard to disagree with based on this offering.
It’s also going to act as a perfect filler for anyone waiting for the next single from 'the Weeknd', given how uncannily similar ‘Rhoads’ sounds to the American stars chart-topping music. With an album “The Mind Is Like The Moon” due out in the summer of 2021, ‘Rhoads’ raises the bar even higher for GREYSKIES.
