Greylag had been simmering in a cross-country creative tailspin prior to relocating to Portland a few years back. Their debut EP similarly stewed in a holding pattern as the band found footing, settling into themselves and establishing an almost immediate fanbase. There's an extremely good reason for that. The Only Way to Kill You plays like a Zane Grey fever dream, with a rich, continental imagery that focuses on the holy trinity of melody, music, and lyricism. "Black Crow" is a great example of this—its underlying tribal thrust belies a terrifically textured, affecting Americana pop that's heavy with percussion, mandolin, and harmony. Greylag was already part of this year's Sasquatch festival, so the secret's certainly out. But it's exciting to ponder what sort of alchemy could follow from a band as relatively fresh as this.
