The Grey Merchant's blue collar muscular romance wave of "Anthropocene"

"unique and fantastic"

The Grey Merchant are an alternative rock band from Blackrock, Cork, Ireland and their dreamy rocker Anthropocene breathes with a big vast sea of romance as the verses are spoken in earnest and give way to the plaintively sung choruses amid big blue collar major chords that in another place or time have the same muscular back bone as The Who or Bruce Springsteen but The Grey Merchant swing with the romance wave tones and shoe gaze affections of bands like Big Country or Echo and The Bunnymen. Beautiful stuff.

‘a rousing first look at what to expect from the Grey Merchant… …It’ll get the juices flowing and the blood boiling’
‘Once you let yourself succumb to the crisp edgy sting and moody undertone you become swallowed and consumed in the tireless relentless onslaught of the meandering entwining coil of The Grey Merchant’s unique and fantastic masterpiece.’
‘a distinctly motorik krautrock fashion all the while pulsing stunning frequencies into the atmosphere… …The Grey Merchant’ are most definitely the ones to watch.’
‘ I was blown away by its power and added ferocity.... ...Spotless (The Protecting Veil) is a wonderfully powerful tune and if this is the taste of things to come then The Grey Merchant will be worth looking out for in 2017’ -Bobby Green
'‘The Last Transmission’ barges in with no introductions or niceties. There’s a Britpop-era-Radiohead vibe from the enormous wall of guitars that precede the verse.' - Marky Edison, Puremzine
