Watch: Gray Things “I Want to Live”

11 Dec 2012 — Henning Lahmann

Gray Things

Appropriately dreamy if slightly unsettling visuals for the wonderfully melancholic "I Want It to Live", taken off Gray Things' new single Girl. This latest material by Cats Purring affiliate Thomas Cooper is less frantic and funky and neatly fits into that stream of surprisingly sincere and downbeat, introspective electro pop artists coming across the Atlantic lately just in time for the grim Berlin winter. Montréal-based superstar in waiting Majical Cloudz comes to mind with his outstanding tune "Turns Turns Turns", but "I Want It to Live" surely doesn't need to take a backseat in comparison. Very pretty.

Girl is out on London's Make Mine.
