Following the success of their acclaimed debut album, Greywind are back with their brand-new single ‘Am I Asleep?’ – out now

Making little secret of their ambitious global plans, Greywind are fast proving themselves as a force to be reckoned with. Raised in the Irish town of Killarney, their mutual passion for expansive, stadium-sized rock music has since propelled them beyond the confines of stifled opportunity and into realms of superstar potential.

Produced by Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon) the duo’s brand-new single, ‘Am I Asleep?’ bursts with textual, cinematic magnitude. The track’s sweeping post-rock soundscapes alternate between tender, evocative and aggressive. Steph O'Sullivan’s voice is the magic ingredient that elevates Greywind into another dimension. And don’t miss the epic accompanying video in our video box.

Greywind: "During the writing process for ‘Am I Asleep?’, we were heavily inspired by movies. We’ve always aimed to bring a cinematic sound to our music and visuals, and we wanted to expand on that more than ever.”

Formed by siblings Steph (vocals) and Paul O'Sullivan (guitar), Greywind are an alternative rock duo from Killarney, Ireland. Armed with a powerful mission statement, painstaking years calling out to be noticed were condensed into a single week, when the first song they uploaded to SoundCloud was picked up by Zane Lowe and Daniel P Carter on Radio 1, a deluge of industry interest followed, and a bidding war with all the major record labels. The band’s eventual 2017 debut album, Afterthoughts would go on to address the dark heart of the human condition and layout the foundations for the band’s thirst for stardom. Recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios in Texas with Grammy-award winning producer, Jason Perry, the album was released through Universal and charted in the Official UK Rock Charts on the day of their sold-out debut headline show in London.

In 2020, Greywind toured with American rock band, Palaye Royale and were selected to perform for the US Embassy. They’ve also played some of the biggest stages around the world, including Reading and Leeds Festival, Isle of Wight Festival, Download Festival, Rock Am Ring and have supported the likes of You Me At Six, Thrice and The Coronas. Greywind have been heavily backed by BBC Radio 1, Zane Lowe and MTV.

Greywind’s brand-new single, ‘Am I Asleep?’ is out now.
