Though Nova Scotia rockers Kestrels might rightly be called a shoegaze band, their new single is a whole other beast. “Grey And Blue,” the debut track from their forthcoming Dream Or Don’t Dream, offers up a sound that’s pure sticky-sweeet ear candy. Featuring a fast-paced rhythm and drop-dead gorgeous harmonies not unlike Jellyfish, The Posies or 90s-era Redd Kross, “Grey And Blue” is quite easy on the ears. Oh, wait a second, what’s this? Smack dab in the middle of the song comes a raging guitar solo, courtesy of one J Mascis!
