Taken off their much-awaited seven-track debut EP called ‘What Happens to Friendships?‘, Grids and Dots flourish our minds to a higher place beyond what we can see, in this dusty and often confusion-riddled world on ‘City Skies‘.
Grids and Dots is a dreamy four-piece indie-rock/shoegaze act from Sydney, Australia, who showcase their busy inner-city lives, with a glorious backdrop of stunning melodies that takes your stress away.
As their quirky poetry has you thinking deeper than before, you start to fall in love with the mellow vocals and seemingly effort soundscape, that feels so soothing into the healing heart.
This is the message of looking into the big city life as you work from your office or whilst walking around, you are looking for love and things seem like a blur, as you struggle to see into true reality. The smog, the smoke and general hustle and bustle can really have you overthinking too deeply — the search for your true purpose is always close — but seems so far away, unless you know where the elusive treasure is hidden.
‘City Skies‘ from the splendid Sydney-based shoegazers Grids and Dots, is the kind of song that has you in a gaze outside, as you look around and see people going about their daily business. You feel reflective and look a bit closer, as this hauntingly beautiful song opens up your imagination, to what you are really trying to achieve in life to be truly happy.
