Kim GrayPlastic Memory
[Buzz Records]

For their third full-length offering, Kim Gray put forward a dreamy commentary on modern life. A turn away from their jangly, guitar-driven back catalogue, the tracks on Plastic Dream are defined by the grainy, Twin Peaks-inspired synths that hover like distant sirens over unignorable rhythms.

Offering confessional, first person observations the lyrics are critical but never cynical, humorous but never satirical. Now part of Toronto’s Buzz Records family (Dilly Dally, Fake Palms, HSY), Kim Gray puts out a smooth collection of indie rock tunes that achieve the difficult victory of feeling timeless while relating to the time at hand.
