Sunshine Coast singer-songwriter, Calan Mai, has returned with his new single, Great Grey Northâ€”a Britpop tribute to the ever-grey UK. Recorded in Chicago with famed producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine) and mixed by Peter Holz (Gang of Youths, Peking Duk), this track has broken hearts and crossed oceans in the making.
After a two-year stint in Manchester, Calan Mai returned to Australia with the love of his life. When a management deal sent him to America, this relationship ended. Great Grey North is a break-up song about the moments in between. Over non-stop strums, Calan Mai weaves a story from rainy snapshots, hazy regrets and half-remembered dialogue like a man waking from a dream and aching to return.
After years spent making folk music in the US and UK, Calan Mai is homeâ€”ready rock and potentially roll if conditions are right. Great Grey North is the perfect vehicle for Calan Maiâ€™s storytelling: heartfelt, funny and bittersweet.
