On the heels of its acclaimed debut album Modern Fiction, Ducks Ltd. shares the capricious, yet whimsical new single “Sheets of Grey.” The track wrestles with the inertia of depression and how hard it can be to break out of its cycle while taking pleasure in embracing that state. The ebb and flow of these feelings are evidenced in the rather monotone verses which are swept into the uptempo choruses in high register. “There is a certain, temporary comfort to be found in the abyss! Somewhere right before it inevitably becomes extremely awful,” lyricist Tom Mcgreevy reflects. “Sheets of Grey” is one of the band’s first songs ever and a favorite to perform. While, thematically, it was not fit for the album, it’s worthy of its own release to cement its own place in the Ducks Ltd. catalog.
